Known for her fiery temperament, Ida B. Wells, as portrayed by Marti Gobel, will share a bit about her life, her work in journalism, and how her role in the U.S. suffrage movement was intertwined with her lifelong crusade against racism, violence, and discrimination toward African Americans. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
