They say : Ida B. Wells and the reconstruction of race by James West Davidson( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1880 and 1930, Southern mobs hanged, burned, and otherwise tortured to death at least 3,300 African Americans. And yet the rest of the nation largely ignored the horror of lynching or took it for granted, until a young schoolteacher from Tennessee raised her voice. Her name was Ida B. Wells." "In They Say, historian James West Davidson recounts the first thirty years of this woman's life - as well as the story of the great struggle over the meaning of race in post-emancipation America. He captures the changes that swept the South as Wells grew up in Holly Springs, Mississippi: the spread of education among the free blacks, the rise of political activism, the bitter struggles for equality in the face of entrenched social custom. Davidson traces the crosscurrents of these cultural conflicts through Ida Wells's forceful personality. When a conductor threw her off a train for not retreating to the segregated car, she sued the railroad - and won. When she protested conditions in the segregated Memphis schools, she was fired - and took up full-time journalism. And in 1892, when an explosive lynching rocked Memphis, she embarked full-blown on the career for which she is not remembered, as an outspoken writer and lecturer against lynching."--Jacket

This book began as an attempt to bring more life to the reading and learning of history. As practicing historians, we have been troubled by a growing disinterest in or even animosity toward the study of the past. How is it that when we and other historians have found so much that excites curiosity, other people find history irrelevant and boring? Perhaps, we thought, if lay readers and students understood better how historians go about their work -- how they examine evidence, how they pose questions, and how they reach answers -- history would engage them as it does us. - Introduction

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did a land and people of such immense diversity come together under a banner of freedom and equality to form one of the most remarkable nations in the world? Everyone from young adults to grandparents will be fascinated by the answers uncovered in James West Davidson's vividly told A Little History of the United States. Davidson guides listeners through five hundred years, from the first contact between the two halves of the world to the rise of America as a superpower in an era of atomic perils and diminishing resources. In short, vivid chapters the book brings to life hundreds of individuals whose stories are part of the larger American story. Pilgrim William Bradford stumbles into an Indian deer trap on his first day in America; Harriet Tubman lets loose a pair of chickens to divert attention from her escaping slaves; the toddler Andrew Carnegie, later an ambitious industrial magnate, gobbles his oatmeal with a spoon in each hand. Such stories are riveting in themselves, but they also spark larger questions to ponder about freedom, equality, and unity in the context of a nation that is, and always has been, remarkably divided and diverse
