A new edition of IDA B. 'N THE LYNCHING TREE by Carolyn Nur Wistrand was published September 2018 by One Act Play Depot in Canada and is now available on Amazon. Ida B. ‘n the Lynching Tree is based on the foremost African American female journalist of the 19th century, Miss Ida B. Wells. A founding member of the NAACP, Ida B. Wells was characterized as courageous, fearless, and militant. The play moves swiftly through major events in the life of Miss Ida B. Wells, from her birth on July 16, 1862 in Holly Springs, Mississippi, to the Memphis lynchings of March 9, 1892, which resulted in her lifelong crusade against lynching and inequities, brought about by Jim Crow laws in the Deep South.
