Ida B. Wells: The Mother of the American Human Rights Movement

Ida B. Wells’s life has intriguing ties to Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, President William McKinley, Booker T. Washington, Duke of Argyll, and Sir John Gorst. She was a journalist who wrote about human rights and had a clear understanding about her rights as a woman. This presentation highlights her fearless campaign to realize the most significant contribution to the investigation and avocation against human lynchings. Yet, she is unknown to most people of this generation.

Our guest speaker, Dr. Cassie Sade Turnipseed, is a public historian and community outreach specialist who works to document and preserve the heritage of the Mississippi Delta. She teaches history at Mississippi Valley State University.
