"we are stuck in the “the era of Bush-Obama“—a period that “will be remembered for an unprecedented erosion of civil liberties and a disregard for transparency. On the war against a tactic—terrorism—and its insidious fallout, the United States could have skipped the 2008 election. It made little difference.” (John Cassidy in the New Yorker) by erika

Journalist Ida B. Wells-Barnett was an avid suffragist & an early Civil Rights leader, who used the power of the pen to challenge racial & sexual discrimination. In 1892, Wells published a scathing exposé of lynching practices. In retaliation for her articles, a mob destroyed her Memphis printing press, & after numerous threats to her life, Wells moved to Chicago to continue her anti-lynching campaign. | www.nwhm.org | National Women's History Museum | #NWHM #WomensHistory #WHM #IdaBWells by lourdes

Standing as one of the most-heinous, race-motivated crimes in America’s history, the kidnapping & savage murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Mississippi. Considered a transformative moment in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, Till’s death shocked a nation & still resonates deeply. Till’s murder helped push along the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which allowed the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate in local matters. by sally
