Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 5^-8. From the Trailblazer Biography series, this book introduces Wells-Barnett, the African American writer and activist who worked for justice for her people. Born a slave, Wells-Barnett developed a reputation as a hard-hitting journalist and speaker who, despite intimidation, was willing to take a stand against racially motivated mob violence in the South. Reproductions of black-and-white period engravings and photographs illustrate the text, and the photos of Wells and her family are quite effective. However, sections of the book that concern Wells' speaking out against lynchings in the early 1890s are illustrated with photos of lynchings that apparently occurred several decades later, given the dress of the onlookers. Still, readers will find this a competently written biography of a remarkable woman. --Carolyn Phelan"
