Ida B. Wells Conference
The Ida B. Wells Conference is organized by the Ida B. Wells Association, founded by University of Memphis graduate students to promote discussion of philosophical issues arising from the African American experience and to provide a context in which to mentor undergraduates.
On May 4, 2020, Ida B. Wells was awarded the Pulitzer Prize posthumously for her outstanding and courageous reporting on the horrific and vicious violence against African Americans during the era of lynching.
