Summary
"Follows the story of Ivoe Williams, an African American woman journalist, through the start of the twentieth century"--Provided by publisher
Summary
A poor, African-American Muslim girl in rural, racially segregated turn-of-the-century Texas, Ivoe Williams discovers a passion for journalism while pilfering old newspapers from her mother's white employer. Ivoe keeps her eyes on the horizon, first earning a college scholarship and later moving to Kansas City with her former teacher and lover, Ona. Together, the women start Jam! On the Vine, the nation's first female-run Black newspaper. Loosely based on pioneering journalist Ida B. Wells and Charlotta Bass (the first African-American woman to own and operate a newspaper), this dramatic debut should enchant readers who enjoy strong female characters and well-researched, vividly described period detail. -- Description by Gillian Speace
