    This is so freaking dope. So wonderfully, incredibly, amazingly dope. Thanks for this. Very talented artist you are, and very brilliant thinker.

    Thank you for sharing this!!! I was going to ask if you would you happen to be open to removing curse words for this to be shared with my children…but then realized how crazy that request would be. If my children are old enough to hear these details, then they are old enough to handle cursing. Oh me.

    My dad is a big Ida B Wells fan, so I’ve heard a lot about her! One point my dad made, which I love, is that her implications that white women were not being raped and kidnapped by black men, was that white women might be CHOOSING to have relationships with black men. Which meant that you know, women might have some kind of agency in their own sexuality. GASP.

    A phenomenal woman, we’d be lucky to see another like her in our life times. She’s one of those key people in history that everyone else forgets about, and she deserves so much, much better. Thank you for including her.

    I read more about her after reading this. Not surprisingly, since she was fighting for change, a lot of people went against her. They even got creative with their insults. (See here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/10/AR2008041003101.html)

    She’s going against persecution, death, mobs, and the injustices in her society. It takes a lot of courage and grit to fight for that day in and day out. Many heroes are unsung, thank you for sharing her story.

    Today is Election Day, and a lot of my friends are wearing white in honor of the suffragettes. I…couldn’t, especially after reading more about how once the suffragette movement started to take off, the once integrated group started to split. I tell my white friends that they don’t have to feel guilty for wearing white or red for Susan B Anthony, just understand that I’ll be wearing yellow instead (one of the original suffragette colors, and the one you’ve chosen here).
