'Truth Telling: Frances Willard and Ida B. Wells'

In the 1890s, Woman’s Christian Temperance Union President Frances Willard and journalist and activist Ida B. Wells fought a war of words in the international press over Miss Willard’s lack of public support for Wells’ anti-lynching campaign.

“Truth Telling: Frances Willard and Ida B. Wells,” a community history project that explores this conflict will launch at 6 p.m. on March 14 in Northwestern University’s Harris Hall. A digital exhibit of original archival sources, community conversations and public programs seeks to uncover the full truth of the conflict, and explore its many meanings and ramifications for today’s world.

Project Partners with the Frances Willard House and Museum include Loyola University Chicago, and Northwestern University, where Miss Willard was the first Dean of Women.
