Unit 4 Post 1 Emily Evans

Ida B. Wells was an African-American journalist who lived in Mississippi. She focuses mainly on mob violence, specifically lynching. She was raised in a strongly religious household and used Christianity in her activism. The racial violence that she wrote about contradicted her Christian ideals. Mary Church Terrell focused more on the idea of “racial uplift,” that racism could end if African-Americans advanced through education. She attended Wilberforce University, which is affiliated with the Methodist Church.
