Caption: Ida Bell Wells-Barnett (1862-1931), US suffragist, sociologist, journalist and civil rights activist. Born into slavery as Ida Bell Wells, she was orphaned at 16. Her experiences in the 1880s and 1890s of racial discrimination, segregation and mob lynchings, informed her journalism and campaigning. Notable works include 'Southern Horrors: Lynch Law in All Its Phases' (1892). Wells was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. She also toured Europe to campaign for rights for women and African-Americans. Her unfinished autobiography 'Crusade for Justice' was published in 1928. Photographed by Oscar B. Willis in the 1920s.
