Congress Parkway Has a new Name

Congress Parkway will be renamed for civil rights icon Ida B. Wells.

Ida B. Wells, a journalist and anti-lynching crusader whose civil rights work is credited with giving women in Illinois the right to vote ten years ahead of women outside the state.

With relatively few businesses, Congress can be renamed with minimum inconvenience to any addresses located on it.
