Dennis and Judy Fradin's Books
A former teacher, Judy's writing career began in the late 1980's as a researcher for her husband Dennis' books. While researching famous people from Mississippi, she unearthed the true story of Ida B. Wells-Barnett, a courageous woman who crusaded against lynchings in the United States. Judy's discovery resulted in the award-winning Ida B. Wells: Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.
From there, Judy and Dennis went on to co-write over three dozen books, including several featuring fascinating female historic figures: Sacagawea (Lewis and Clark's legendary tour guide); Mary Church Terrell (a civil rights activist); and Daisy Bates, who mentored the nine African American teens braving their way into Little Rock's Central High
and into history.
