(July 16, 1862 – March 25, 1931), more commonly known as Ida B. Wells, was an African-American journalist, newspaper editor, suffragist, sociologist, feminist, [1] Georgist,[2] and an early leader in the Civil Rights Movement. She was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.

Born in Holly Springs, Mississippi, Wells lost her parents and a sibling in the 1878 yellow fever epidemic at a young age. She went to work and, with her grandmother, kept the rest of the family intact. She moved with some of her siblings to Memphis, Tennessee, finding pay better for teachers.

Later as an activist, Wells documented lynching in the United States in the 1890s, showing that it was often used in the South as a way to control or punish Black people who competed with whites, rather than being based on criminal acts by black people, as was usually claimed by whites.[3] She was active in women's rights and the women's suffrage movement, establishing several notable women's organizations. Wells was a skilled and persuasive rhetorician and traveled internationally on lecture tours.[4]

Ida B. Wells Weds Ferdinand L. Barnett the Most Important Event That Ever Occurred in Colored Society in Chicago Date: Friday, June 28, 1895   Paper: New York Herald (New York, New York)  Issue: 21494  Page: 5  

The most Important Event That Ever Occurred in Color Society in Chicago
By Telegraph to the Herald

Chicago, Ill., June 27, 1895—The Most important event that ever occurred in colored society in Chicago was the wedding to-night of Miss Ida B. wells and Ferdinand L. Barnett, which took place in Bethel A.M.E. Church, at the corner of Thirtieth and Dearborn Streets.  It was the eve of the season, and 500 invited guest assembled to witness the ceremony, which was performed by the REV D.A. Graham, pastor of the Church.

Both the bride and groom are prominent in the colored circles.  Mr. Barnett is a lawyer, and has been connected for many years with all public movements here for the benefit of his race.  He is one of the principal owners of the Conservator, a newspaper devoted to the interests of the colored people, and is president of the Anti-Lynching Society.  He was graduated from the High School here and the Union College of Law.

Mrs. Barnett is perhaps the most prominent colored woman living.  She was born in Holly Springs, Miss., and taught school in Memphis, Tenn., until she lost her position because the part she took in editing a colored paper called Free Speech.  Miss Wills has been lecturing against lynching, and
has made two trips to London, where she has been enthusiastically received.

Ida B Barnett, 86 of Los Angeles, California
Ida Barnett, daughter of rights leader, journalist
Chicago Sun-Times (IL) - Thursday, August 11, 1988

Ida B. Barnett, 86, the last surviving child of crusading journalist and famed civil rights leader Ida B. Wells of Chicago, died Aug. 4 in Los Angeles.

Miss Barnett helped edit her mother's autobiography, Crusade for Justice: the Autobiography of Ida B. Wells, published in 1970. She lived in Chicago until 1986, when she moved to California.

Miss Barnett's parents were two of the nation's leading champions of civil rights.

Her father, Ferdinand L. Barnett, was a lawyer and owner of the first black newspaper in Chicago, the Chicago Conservator. He also became the first black assistant state's attorney in Cook County and the state.

Miss Barnett was her father's secretary until his death in 1938.

In 1895, he had married Ida B. Wells, who was 33 and already internationally known for her crusade against lynchings of blacks.

Ida B. Wells was one of the original 40 founders of the NAACP in 1910, organized the first Negro woman's club in Chicago in 1893, teamed with Jane Addams of Hull House to block separate schools for blacks in Chicago, and was a leading advocate for women to get the vote.

Ida B. Wells was inducted into the Black Press Hall of Fame last year, and a Chicago Housing Authority project is named in her honor. She died in 1931.

Miss Barnett helped raise the children of her sister, Alfreda Duster, after the sister's husband died in 1945. She assisted Mrs. Duster from 1968 to 1970 in editing their mother's autobiography. Mrs. Duster died in 1982.

 
A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Aug. 21 at Woodlawn United Methodist Church, 1208 E. 64th St.
