The home of visionary civil rights leader Ida B. Wells is located not far from the western shore of Lake Michigan, on the west side of Martin Luther King Drive, on the south side of Chicago. Wells occupied the sturdy stone townhouse with her husband and four children from 1919 to 1929. She was a tireless and forward-thinking activist who played a key role in the founding of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the urban reform of Chicago, the anti-lynching movement, and women’s suffrage.
