And activists and educators have successfully raised enough money to erect a monument to honor famed journalist, abolitionist and suffragist Ida B. Wells. The fundraising effort was first launched over 10 years ago by Ida B. Wells’s great-granddaughter, Michelle Duster. The $300,000 monument will be designed and built by celebrated African-American sculptor Richard Hunt and installed near Ida B. Wells’s former home in Bronzeville, Chicago.
