The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.

— Ida B. Wells

Ida B. Wells (1862-1931), an activist, educator and investigative journalist, brought widespread attention to the murders of Black people in the South by white lynch mobs. In addition to her anti-lynching campaign, for which she was posthumously awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2020, Wells remained politically active throughout her lifetime.
