About Author

Ida B. Wells-Barnett

Ida B. Wells was an American investigative journalist, educator, and pioneer in the civil rights movement. Her full name was Ida Bell Wells-Barnett, and she lived from July 16, 1862, to March 25, 1931. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was founded by one of its founders. Ida B. Wells dedicated her life to fighting against prejudice and brutality, as well as for the equality of African Americans, particularly women. She is regarded as the most well-known Black woman in American history at the time. Wells, who was born a slave in Holly Springs, Mississippi, was set free thanks to the American Civil War's Emancipation Proclamation. Ida B. Wells later found greater compensation as a teacher after relocating to Memphis, Tennessee, with several of her siblings. Wells soon co-owned the Memphis Free Speech and Headlight newspaper and began contributing to it. She reported on instances of racial discrimination and segregation. Following more research, Wells created The Red Record in 1895, a 100-page pamphlet that goes into greater detail regarding lynching in the United States following the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Also mentioned were the issues that Black people have faced in the South since the Civil War.
