Center for the Study of Ida B. Wells and the African American Heritage in North Mississippi

The development of a website and searchable database on the life work of pioneer journalist and civil rights advocate Ida B. Wells.

Rust College proposes to develop an online repository (database) with an innovative front-end website entitled, The Center for the Study of Ida B. Wells and the African American Heritage in North Mississippi. We propose a collaborative effort involving three humanities faculty members (in English, journalism and music) and one Social Science (history) faculty member to create content and educational material using web-based technology. Funds will be used to develop an electronically searchable collection of electronic texts written in or about Ida B. Wells and the African-American community of Holly Springs/Marshall County and North Mississippi from which she was born.
