Ida B. Wells – Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris

We are very pleased to have Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris join us for this expansive conversation about the life and times of Ida B. Wells. Born in Holly Springs Mississippi in 1862, Ida B. Wells moved to Memphis after losing her parents and a sibling to the yellow fever epidemic of 1878.  

Listen as Mayor Harris walks us through Ms. Wells life, here and in Chicago, IL. 

Joe Lowry, Mayor Harris, Trish Gully & Mark White
