Today’s Google Doodle is an Inspiration to All Women…

If you tuned into the main Google page, you would’ve noticed today’s Google Doodle of Ida B. Wells.

Ida Bell Wells-Barnett (July 16, 1862 – March 25, 1931), more commonly known as Ida B. Wells, was an African-Americanjournalist, newspaper editor, suffragist, sociologist, Georgist,[1] and an early leader in the Civil Rights Movement. She documented lynching in the United States, showing that it was often used as a way to control or punish blacks who competed with whites, rather than being based on criminal acts by blacks, as was usually claimed by white mobs.[2] 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.[3] (Excerpt from Wikipedia Article)
