Biography - A Short Wiki

Civil rights leader and women’s rights activist who gained national attention for documenting the groups lynching blacks in the United States.

She was born to James And Elizabeth Wells. She married to Ferdinand L. Barnett. She had two sons, Herman and Charles, and two daughters, Alfreda and Ida.



Thus lynch law held sway in the far West until civilization spread into the Territories and the orderly processes of law took its place. The emergency no longer existing, lynching gradually disappeared from the West.


The city of Memphis has demonstrated that neither character nor standing avails the Negro if he dares to protect himself against the white man or become his rival.


The appeal to the white man’s pocket has ever been more effectual than all the appeals ever made to his conscience.


No nation, savage or civilized, save only the United States of America, has confessed its inability to protect its women save by hanging, shooting, and burning alleged offenders.


There is nothing we can do about the lynching now, as we are out-numbered and without arms.
