In Pursuit of Justice: a One-Woman Play about Ida B. Wells, in a 1hr. 45-Minute version, made its debut in 1995 with the H.A.D.L.E.Y. Players in New York. The play received four AUDELCO awards: Best actress for its star Janice Jenkins, and Best Costume (my mother, Josephine Jones, provided some of the costumes). the play has been revived at the College of New Rochelle, at the County College of Morris in New Jersey, and several times in New York, including a production of the one-hour version at the Payan Theatre off-Broadway in 2006. Primarily a fiction writer, Wendy Jones has also published a short story entitled Savannah, which appeared in 1996 in the anthology Illuminating Tales of the Black experience published by Penguin books. In 2005, she founded WRITING MAVEN, which is a company that assists with or writes projects ranging from student compositions to resumes to dating profiles to wedding vows. Ms. Jones is currently waiting for her agent's comments on her mother's biography: the extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Woman. Born and raised in Harlem, Wendy lives in New Jersey. She is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, Inc.
