How one journalist risked her life to hold murderers accountable
In the late 1800's, lynchings were happening all over the American South, often without any investigation or consequences for the murderers. A young journalist set out to expose the truth about these killings. Her reports shocked the nation, launched her journalism career and a lifelong pursuit of civil rights. Christina Greer details the life of Ida B. Wells and her tireless struggle for justice. [Directed by Anna Nowakowska, narrated by Christina Greer, music by Matthias Runge].
