The Admirable American for this week is a female, African American, author, editor, and advocate for social justice. In the 1890s, Ida Wells-Barnett led the campaign against lynching in the U.S. editing the Memphis Free Speech, and writing articles and books about the violence of lynch mobs. Her speaking tour traveled Europe, but the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition used race to deny her participation as an exhibitor. She formed the National Association of Colored Women in 1896, and helped found the NAACP.
