Ida Bell Wells-Barnett (1862 – 1931) American investigative journalist, educator, and an early leader in the civil rights movement. She was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Born into slavery in Mississippi, Wells was freed by the Emancipation Proclamation during the American Civil War. She later moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where she worked as a teacher and went on to co-own and write for the Memphis Free Speech and Headlight newspaper. Her reporting covered incidents of racial segregation and inequality. Subjected to continued threats, Wells left Memphis for Chicago. She married & had a family while continuing her work writing, speaking, and organising for civil rights and the women's movement for the rest of her life.
