Ruth Ellis. She came out as a lesbian around 1915, and graduated from Springfield High School in 1919, at a time when fewer than seven percent of African Americans graduated from secondary school.

Their house was a central location for gay and lesbian parties, and also served as a refuge for African American gays and lesbians. Throughout her life, Ellis advocated for gays & lesbians, & for African Americans.

Every photo has a story, and this particular photo has one of the most interesting stories of them all — a story of anonymous fame, and famous anonymity. To this day the above photo, titled “Firing Squad in Iran,” is the only anonymous photo to ever win a Pulitzer Prize. And although the photo was taken in 1979, the photographer (Jahangir Razmi) didn’t receive credit until 2006.
