Why The FBI Hid The Story Of The Most Dangerous Black Woman Ever
Lucy Parsons Revolutionary, radical, anarchist—these titles barely scratch the surface in capturing the identities Lucy Parsons took on during her life. According to local Chicago authorities, Parsons was more dangerous than a thousand rioters, and they were right.She penned down most of her beliefs, and sources say that her writings alarmed the government at the time to the extent that police officers and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) prevented her from speaking in public and often threw her in jail.

Despite her bravery and outspokenness, Parsons mostly kept things about her background hidden.
