Ida B. Wells: The Lynching at the Curve
March 9, 1892- Three African American businessmen, Thomas Moss, Calvin McDowell, and Will Stewart, were murdered at the hands of a mob in Memphis, TN simply for running a better business than their white competitor. The lynching of these men, well respected in the African American community of Memphis, outraged Wells. Emboldened, Wells furiously fought against those who participated in, or ignored, violence against African Americans.
Produced by the Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change. Feature length documentary about Ida B. Wells coming in Spring 2018!
