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

Who I once mixed up with Ida Tarbell
& now I can't remember again: Which one is Standard Oil?
OK, that's Ida Tarbell.
Ida B. Wells was a founder of the NAACP & crusader for women's rights & voting, & against lynching. In 2020, she was awarded a Pulitzer Prize "for her outstanding and courageous reporting on the horrific and vicious violence against African Americans during the era of lynching."
Why didn't I know more about her?!?!
