High Coo – July 16 – Ida B. Wells

Ida B. Wells born July 16, 1862

Former slave, investigative journalist, early civil rights leader and Pulitzer Prize honoree, Ida B. Wells is a role model for all of us. Two of her many famous quotes are:

“The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.”

“Virtue knows no color line.”

Today’s haiku: In Honor of Ida B. Wells

Step up, speak out, do

what must be done, for justice

requires persistence
