Ida B. Wells gets her own monument funded!

“I have some BIG, BIG news. You guys gave more than $40,000 dollars for the Ida B. Wells monument yesterday and THE MONUMENT IS NOW FULLY FUNDED. This was the last big we needed to end @MichelleDuster and her family’s 10-year effort to pay for this project. I want to cry.”

Remember the movement to get that Ida B Wells monument going, which I posted about a bit ago? It just hit its funding goal, after ten years. :)
