The Extra Mile

— Points of Light Volunteer Pathway —

Ida Wells-Barnett crusaded aggressively for civil rights her entire life and was unafraid to exercise those rights when custom ran contrary to the law. Involved in many civil rights causes, she played leadership roles in the women's suffrage movement and in the founding of the NAACP. Wells-Barnett became the era's most outspoken crusader for ending the practice of lynching African-Americans.
"I'd rather go down in history as one lone Negro who dared to tell the government that it had done a dastardly thing than to save my skin by taking back what I have said."
