To celebrate the life and work of Black journalist, advocate and educator Ida B. Wells, the Orange County Community Remembrance Coalition is hosting six virtual events throughout the month of October 2020. Wells-Barnett used the power of words to stop racial violence. She risked her life to shine “the light of truth” on lynching at its height in the U.S. between the 1890s and 1930s.

Our symposia collection of panel discussions, lectures, educator workshops, and performances encourages the continued work of investigative journalism and increasing and retaining reporters and editors of color. Click here for more details and registration.
