Ida B. Wells 

Google Doodles use art to acknowledge important historical figures and holidays from around the world. But a new report says the search-engine company should celebrate more people of color, especially women. Take a look at global icons of color who have been acknowledged with Doodles. –Natelege Whaley (@Natelege_)

Legendary civil rights activist and journalist Ida B. Wells was honored with a Google Doodle on her 153th birthday on July 16, 2015. Wells was a voice for the voiceless during dangerous times for Blacks in America. She wrote about lynchings of African-Americans during the 20th century and traveled internationally to speak out against these heinous acts, which were largely unreported. Wells died March 25, 1931, in Chicago.
