Ida B Wells Barnett

Ida B Wells Barnett
African American journalist, was an active crusader against lynching and a champion of social and political justice for African Americans.
In 1884, while she was traveling by train from school, Wells was forcibly thrown out of a first-class car by the conductor because she refused to ride in the car set aside for African Americans which was nicknamed the "Jim Crow" car. She had purchased a first-class ticket and was determined not to move from her seat, but she was not able to defend herself against the conductor, who literally dragged her from her seat while some of the white passengers applauded. However, Wells, who was determined to fight for justice, sued the railroad and won her case.
