Born to enslaved parents, one year before the Emancipation Proclamation, Ida B. Wells was once considered the most famous Black woman in the United States. As a journalist, she spent her entire life tirelessly fighting to tell the truth and shame the devil – to their face. She wasn’t afraid to pick a fight and she always seemed to show up prepared for battle, with the truth on her side. We think her life is a lesson for all of us and on today’s call we will honor her by speaking truth to power. We promise it’s a conversation you don’t want to miss.
