Ida B. Wells, a African American women who documented the true story of lynching in the US. Lynching was ritualistic, homo erotic, and sexualized and was most often done by white aristocracy rather than poor whites, as is commonly depicted.
Born of slaves, Ida B. Wells-Barnett fought to stop the lynching of Black Americans, carrying her fight to the White House. In 1898 she was part of a delegation to President McKinley demanding government action in the case of a Black postmaster who had been lynched in South Carolina.
