I invite each of you to reflect and express gratitude for a woman who has touched your life. Here is part of the story of a woman (Shall I say “herstory”?), who has changed how I view the power of writing, speaking, and acting on one’s leadings.
This African American woman’s name is Ida B. Wells. She lived from 1862 until 1931. She was born in Holly Springs, Miss. Ida was officially a slave for about the first six months of her life. The Emancipation Proclamation changed her status.
