Abstract
This paper puts the work of the women who created Black Lives Matter into conversation with the reporting of Ida B. Wells. It explores the motivating themes and ideas that drive their respective movements, including notions of intersectionality. It also addresses Wells's place within the canon of African-American political thought, and interrogates the rhetorical effectiveness of her writing vis-a-vis that of Black Lives Matter.
