Alright friends, lets learn about Ida B. Wells
She was one of the first generation of former slaves to grow up after the Emancipation Proclamation, and her parents died when she was 16, while she was in college. 
Rather than let she and her siblings be split up into various foster homes, she dropped out of school and got a job teaching at a black elementary school. While teaching there, she found out that white teachers got paid $80 a month while she and the other black teachers only got $30. This sparked her political activism, especially in race politics. 
Five years later, she moved to Memphis, Tennessee to live with her aunt, and started attending Fisk University and LeMoyne College during her summer vacations from her teaching job. 
While riding a train in 1884, she was asked to move to the crowded smoking car from her own seat, and was ejected from the train when she refused. This was over 70 years before Rosa Parks would do something similar. She sued the railway company and won, before the case was oveturned by the Tennessee Supreme Court. 
When 3 of her friends that ran a grocery store successful enough to actually be competitive with the white owned store nearby where jailed and lynched, she called for evacuation of black people from Memphis. 
She eventually wrote an article called “Southern Horrors: Lynch Laws in All Its Phases” calling out the myth that white women were being constantly raped by black men, asserting that more often than not, it was in fact consensual. 
She was also one of the first women to keep her last name after marriage, was a major activist in the women’s suffrage movement, even when asked to move to the back of the 1913 Suffragist Parade in Washington, and was a founding member of one of the groups that would go on to become part of the NAACP. 
Long story short, Ida B. Wells was a banging feminist who took no shit, even in a time when other feminists were trying to shut her down.

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

#when will people start giving names to young non-white scientists??#bc that shit is getting old

boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.
