Join WTTW for a preview of IDA B. WELLS, the newest documentary and website in WTTW’s CHICAGO STORIES series, which will bring to life the Chicago investigative journalist, racial justice and equity activist, and suffragist as never before. During this exclusive virtual event, go behind the scenes with WTTW moderator Sylvia Ewing who will lead a conversation with the film’s producer and writer Stacy Robinson, author and Ida B. Wells’ great granddaughter Michelle Duster, and Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter and creator of the landmark 1619 Project Nikole Hannah Jones. The panel will offer a sneak peek at the documentary and discuss the trailblazer’s life and legacy in the context of voting, civil rights, policing in the Black Community, and the role of Black women in the electoral process.
