Overflowing with holy discontent.
Emboldened with a contagious fury for justice.
Unwilling to sit idly by while injustice got the last word.
Ida B. Wells.
Without fear of her own well-being, she broke the silence and helped the world see the disparity that existed between the perception of lynchings in the late 1800’s, and the horrific reality of what was actually occurring.
And she wouldn’t stop sharing it until she had no more breath with which to share.
I have learned much from this incredible woman, and I deeply admire her courage and resolve.
