While teaching an African American women's history course at Sarah Lawrence College, LASHONDA BARNETT

found her students stunned by the question how black people managed to survive after slavery. Her answer: "The black press, which became the greatest tool for racial self-help." So it's hardly surprising that her debut novel is inspired by the vivid truth-capturing success of the black press and particularly by the life of African American journalist and newspaper editor Ida B. Wells (1862-1931), Click for more info
