Ida B. Wells Creative Project

Born into slavery July 16th, 1862 in Holly Springs, Mississippi, Wells' life was anythting but simple from the very beginning. After the death of both her parents she became the sole provider for her 8 younger siblings. She still managed to beat the odds and graduate from Rust College in Mississippi and was offered a teaching position in Memphis Tennessee. From that point on she began to use a local black newspaper to expose the poor conditions of colored schools. Although this resulted in her termination as a teacher it fueled the energy to help school systems across America. Her efforts did not stop there. She created her own clubs, campaigns and organizations that all tried to gain equal opprotunity for 2nd class citizens of society such as, women, the poor and African Americans. She was truly an inspiration to so many other aspiring activists and her beielf in the truth and justice for all helped so many groups of people being ignored in society.

Lasting Impact

She is a leader in the efforts it took to integrate our school system and achieve equal opprotunites for all gender, races and ethnicites in all aspects of society.

Coming from as low as slavery,her desire for justice was unwaivering.Learning and teaching should not be subjective,given enough effort everyone can understand the objective. Women were put down and so were blacks,Ida B. Wells gave them a chance to fight back.Clubs, leauges and campaigns were created, they changed the way different people were treated.She did so much for our history, especially education.Thank you Ms. Wells I give you much appreciation.
