Ida B. Wells (Birthday)

Join us in celebrating the birthday of Ida Wells Barnett. Ida was a civil rights activist and founded the Alpha Suffrage Club in 1913. She criticized mainstream (white) suffrage organizations for their exclusion of women of color. During the 1913 Women's March on Washington, Wells and other African-American women were told to march at the back of the procession. Wells refused, waiting until the procession started and then joining the block of women that represented her state.
