The Gist of Freedom welcomes Ida B. Wells: Warrior For Justice presented by Safiya Bandele!
I had bought a pistol the first thing after Tom Moss was lynched, because I expected some cowardly retaliation from the lynchers. I felt that one had better die fighting against injustice than to die like a dog or a rat in a trap…
I felt if I could take one lyncher with me, this would even up the score a little bit!
