Ida B. Wells (1862-1931) was an African American civil rights advocate, journalist, and feminist. Wells was born enslaved in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Wells studied at Fisk University in Nashville. A turning point of her life happened on a train where she was forced to move to the car for African Americans despite having a first-class ticket. She sued the railroad and won a $500 settlement yet the decision was overturned by the Tennessee Supreme Court. Wells started actively writing about issues of race and politics after the incident. She later owned two newspapers: The Memphis Free Speech and Headlight and Free Speech. Wells formed the Alpha Suffrage Club in Chicago which played a crucial role in the victory and resulted in the passage of the Illinois Equal Suffrage Act. Ida B. Wells was awarded a Pulitzer Prize "for her outstanding and courageous reporting on the horrific and vicious violence against African Americans during the era of lynching" in 2020.
