It's March 3, 1913, Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. The delegation of Illinois suffragists is lining up to participate in the Woman Suffrage Procession on the day before Woodrow Wilson's presidential inauguration. And somehow they get the word. Organizer Alice Paul does not want Black and white women marching together. So the group turns to Ida B. Wells-Barnett, their only Black member, and says, "We're sorry, Ida. We don't want to cause any trouble. You'll have to go to the back of the parade." Ida storms off in tears. But she doesn't go to the back. She waits along the parade route. And when the Illinois delegation appears, she steps out in front. So for the rest of the woman suffrage procession, Ida B. Wells-Barnett of Chicago leads the Illinois suffragists. And that's why at Belmont-Paul, we say you can't spell formidable without Ida.
