Ida B. Wells (1862-1931)

Ida B. Wells is a prominent journalist and suffragette who fought for civil and women's rights, forming the first suffrage organization for black women: The Alpha Suffrage Club of Chicago. At the 1913 Women's Suffrage Parade in Washington, D.C., she was told she could only march at the back of the demonstration with the black women, trailing the white women holding the banner. She refused — and she marched under the Illinois banner. 

Wells is also recognized for her anti-lynching activism, calling out white suffragist Frances Willard for attempting to justify the practice for the protection of womanhood.
