Ida B. Wells Day

E-mail Print PDF

SSchool family - Students, teachers, parents,


Did you know that tomorrow is an AYA school holiday? Please check the school calendar: http://ayanetwork.com/ayaschool/calendar.php


We don't take president's day; we do honor those who deserve it.

Mama Afiya says that I can't require it, so you have an extra credit.  Use it as a day on... on IDA B Wells.  Learn about her.  For extra credit, see questions and resources below. Post your answers to the questions on the Wiki.  Also, email them to me @  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  If you have questions, please call me at 404.201.2356

Answers due by close of school. You can collaborate, but you are responsible for knowing all information you post.
You must answer all the questions in section 1,
 and choose 2 questions from section 2.
Section #1:
  1. Who was IDA B Wells? (birth, birth context, description, life significance)
  2. What was her pen name?
  3. When did she serve the National Afro-American Council? What was her role?
  4. What in her background or experience led to her fighting for justice?
  5. What's the line in one of AYA's pledges that refers to her? Why do you think she was chosen?



Section #2:  in addition to the questions above, answer at least two of  these below:
  1. Who did she sue? Why? If it were you, would you have sued?
  2. See where your family time line  intersects with IDA Wells' lifeline. She lived from 1862 to 1931. Check your family time line to see if anyone was born anytime during that period. If so, who? What do you or your family know about them ( for example - name, character, significance to the family, community, etc.)?
  3. Write a short  Kiswahili or French dialogue as if you are talking to sister Wells.
  4. Why do you think she supported or was opposed to the organization that came out of the Niagara Movement?
  5. IDA B. Wells published The Red Record. It's a small yet significant publication. It's here: [http://instruct.westvalley.edu/kelly/Distance_Learning/Online_Readings/Wells_Barnett.htm

        and here: [http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/learning_history/lynching/wells2.cfm]

        Please answer the following questions relative to it.


  1. According to Wells-Barnett, what were the reasons for lynching in the South?
  2. Why had the reasons changed over time?
  3. What did Wells-Barnett hope to accomplish with this publication?  How?
  4. If what Wells-Barnett wrote about was common knowledge, why would her editorials provoke such threatening reactions?



6. Assuming that lynching was designed to instill fear in Black people then, what is used to instill fear in us now. Please explain. In this light, why is IDA B. Wells' work so important?



And others that you may find

Wekesa O. Madzimoyo,

Mis-education is key to this process of alienation. 


Often students are either alienated from the community in the process of becoming "educated," or they are alienated from the subject (poor grades, low skill), if they choose to stay connected to our community. Either way - we loose, and those alien to our community are served. Yes, to we serve them royally! Let's reverse that. Come to our Sunday Educational Discussion and Open House.
All you need is computer and speakers. A head phone is a plus, so you can talk and type.
