Fearless Journalist and All-Round Badass - Ida B. Wells-Barnett. (1862-1931)
Born a slave, Ida B. Wells was a pioneering black woman who used journalism to stand up against white supremacy and segregation and who led an anti-lynching crusade in the 1890s. She was a writer and editor, a suffragist and an early leader in the civil rights movement.
Wells-Barnett is also known for her rally cry, “The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.”
