During her anti-lynching campaign(s) Ida B Wells began developing sociological methods --systematic ways of counting and tracking lynching and the circumstances that surrounded lynching-- that would not be recognized as such for years. It's likely that she published results from these methods before a number of European males famous for "having created sociology." She published the results of the lynching investigations she conducted all over the south in small books or pamphlets such as "Southern Horrors" and "Georgia Lynch Law" The NAACP, of which she was a founding member, would continue the work she began more than 20 years before.
