Fighting for the equality of all African Americans.
Crusader for justice.
Wells campaigned against segregation. She was an active journalist and suffragist. Ida was known for being a leader of an anti-lynching foundation. She investigated lynching and in the process uncovered the lynching of 728 men, women, and children. Ida spent her life promoting racial equality. Her editorials condemned many white establishments. She also owned a printing press which was destroyed because of all the articles she printed, bashing those who fought to keep segregation around.She never gave up no matter how many times she was threatened.
Born a slave, became a hero.
This is one of the most common pictures of Wells.
Her whole life, she fought for the equality of African Americans.
You heard her roar.
Without her work, we would not have gotten as far as we have into the equal rights for all Americans, white and black.
Amazing, American Activist.
Fight for Your Rights.
Ida always fought for what she believed in and I truly respect that. She is an inspiration and a great example of how the progressives helped our country. She fought to make America one. No whites, blacks, Asians, Germans. One race of Americans who can live together and see the freedom of our land.
