Ida B. Wells  
In honor of Black History Month, I'd like to introduce you to Ida B. Wells, 1862-1931, a journalist who was born a slave in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Read more about her amazing life.

I first heard about her life in my women's history class. I highly recommend taking such a class if it's available to you locally. I heard a lot of wonderful stories about women that I wouldn't have encountered otherwise.

She's also one of the few women to be inducted into the Tennessee Newspaper Hall of Fame.

It is amazing what she accomplished at a time when women weren't commonly represented in her profession!
