Ida B. Wells Great Grandson- Dan Duster, Talks Anti-Lynching legacy. Join Dan on The Gist of Freedom Tuesday at 8pm with host Dr. Weldon McWilliams. 

Ida never feared the lynch mob, she had faith in God to protect her: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalms 23:4). A threat to her life was not going to stop her from her crusade.



Dan Duster educates people about the legacy of Ida B. Wells (his great-grandmother anti-lynching advocate) as well as the struggles and triumphs of other leaders in African American history. He also talks about his career as a top corporate salesperson and prosperous entrepreneur.  Dan draws parallels to all of those experiences to help others feel empowered and create solutions to the obstacles they face today.
