How long is too long to wait for justice? It has been almost 12 years since Nichole Alloway was killed on a farm in Scioto County, Ohio, and still, no one has been charged with her murder. The Scioto County Sheriff's Department doesn't seem to care about this young woman, show them that you care.
Santa Fe is rich with history and art, but many visitors don't know is that La Cieneguilla - a site that gives visitors unfettered access to thousands of vibrant Native American petroglyphs - sits on the outskirts of the city, minutes away from major attractions.
Bandelier National Monument sits on the edge of the Los Alamos National Labs, about an hour west of Santa Fe, NM. It's not as well known as Mesa Verde or Chaco Canyon, but fewer people and up-close, unsupervised access to the cliff dwellings and petroglyphs make BNM well worth your time.
Unfortunately, sexual assault is a common occurrence during wartime, and the American Civil War was no different. Ida B. Wells-Barnett let her prejudices guide her rhetoric, and she declared that such assualts did not occur at all.
Ida B. Wells often put rhetoric before facts, and America - and specifically American women - are paying for it to this day. It is one thing to exaggerate statistics to bolster your cause, but a cause built solely on a foundation of lies is never righteous, and only creates more victims.
Ida B. Wells theorized that when white women reported crimes against them, black men got lynched. This theory was long on rhetoric and short on facts. The attack on Lizzie Yeates was neither a pattern nor an anomaly. George Smith's attack on a child, like similar attacks, were ignored by Wells.
For too long, we have embraced and propagated the myth that lynchings were caused by white women falsely accusing black men of raping them. We swallowed the lie that white women accused black men of assaulting them after consensual encounters. It is time, now, to put this lie to an end and unite.
In 1895, the historic yet elusive Jacks Letter was sent to Florence Balgarnie, an anti-lynching activist and radical suffragette. The effect of Jacks' vile insults hurled upon black women was equal to the "shot heard around the world," and mustered the black women's societies in America to unite.
In 1893, Ida B. Wells made her first trip to England, to speak on the horrors of lynching in the United States. She was invited by her friend, Catherine Impey. Her visit, however, was cut short by drama between Impey and another staunch antiracist, Isabella Fyvie Mayo.
The lynching of Thomas Moss, part owner of the People's Grocery of Memphis, Tennessee, is a dark chapter in the history of the city. The murders of three black men were never avenged; the white men who committed this terrible crime were never so much as identified, let alone prosecuted by the law.
Before becoming an activist, Ida B. Wells was a teacher and journalist. She began teaching at the age of 16, when her parents died and she was forced to support her siblings. She wrote her radical ideas under the pen name "Iola," so she would not jeopardize her teaching position.
Seventy two years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery bus, Ida B. Wells refused to give up her seat on a "white" train car. Not only did she bravely stand her ground on the train, but she took an even braver stand against racism by suing the company.
Ida B. Wells-Barnett was an influential writer and tireless advocate for African American civil rights after the Civil War. Unfortunately, she built a foundation upon which unity could never be achieved between blacks and whites. It is time now to put old myths to rest and UNITE.
