A TRIBUTE TO WILLIAM GREAVES

IDA B. WELLS:
A PASSION FOR JUSTICE

Director: William Greaves
Documentary, Color, 58 min.
USA 1989
English

 

With readings by Pulitzer-Prize-Winning author Toni Morrison, this work documents the life and times of Ida B. Wells, the pioneering African American journalist, activist, suffragist and anti-lynching crusader of the late 19th and early 20th century. For 40 years, Wells´ stature in Black America was equal to that of such leaders as Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois.

Mit Texten, vorgetragen von Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Toni Morrison, dokumentiert dieser Film das Leben und die Zeit der Ida B. Wells, einer Pionierin im afrikanisch-amerikanischen Journalismus, eine Aktivistin, Kämpferin für das Wahlrecht und gegen Lynchjustiz am Ende des 19ten, Anfang des 20sten Jahrhunderts. Vierzig Jahre lang besaß die Person Ida B. Wells einen Stellenwert im Schwarzen Amerika vergleichbar mit so führenden Persönlichkeiten wie Booker T. Washington und W.E.B. DuBois.
