Summary
The Black women and nonbinary members of the writing collective Echoing Ida harness the power of media for social justice. With over five hundred articles published, their work amplifies the struggles and successes of contemporary freedom movements in America. In this anthology, the best of Echoing Ida's writing is collected for the first time. Featuring a foreword by Michelle Duster, activist and great-granddaughter of Ida B. Wells-Barnett, the essays imagine a gender-expansive and liberated future.
