SEX, LIES, AND CIVIL RIGHTS : THE LIFE AND WORK OF IDA B. WELLS / Paula Giddings. - Talk by Paula Giddings in which she presents a biographical sketch of Ida B. Wells, an African-American woman who began the Civil Rights movement right after the Civil War. Giddings traces how Wells' view of human rights grew from the experience of Reconstruction, and how she dedicated her life to attaining greater legal and social equality for African-Americans, especially African-American women. Giddings presents the denial of gender issues as a problem in the Black community, and how Wells emphasized this shortcoming over 100 years ago. Giddings argues for a direct link between racial and gender discrimination in American society, asserting that the former cannot be solved without addressing the latter. She concludes by showing how the stereotyping of Black women has provided a foundation for many racist perceptions and practices. The solution, she concludes, is to address fundamental stereotypes which permeate American society. - RECORDED: African-American Women Scholars Conference, 1992. BROADCAST: KPFK, 1993.
