The award is named in honor of the distinguished journalist, fearless reporter and wife of one of Americas earliest black publishers. Wells was "editor and proprietor" of theMemphis Free Speech and Headlight. She told her male co-founders she would not help launch the newspaper unless she was made "equal to them." In the late 19th century, Wells won acclaim on two continents for her fearless crusade against lynching.
