Jackson's work with the clinics during the 1930s came to the attention of President and Mrs. Roosevelt and she was invited to the White House to brief them on the project In the 1970s Ida Jackson donated hundreds of acres of Mendocino County ranch land she and her brother owned to the University of California, specifying that proceeds from the sale of the property be used for graduate fellowships for black students pursuing degrees at Berkeley.

Also depicted Is Ida Louise Jackson, the first black public school teacher In the state of California, hired by the Oakland School District In 1926.

Bom in 1902 In Mississippi, the only girl In a family with eight children, Jackson was encouraged by her parents to achieve high levels of education. Although she had earned a teaching degree from a college In New Orleans before coming to California In 1918, her first attempts at finding a position in the Oakland schools were met with failure. Ajrxordlng to the history files, she was told she waa not suffldentry qualified. Undlsoouraged, Jackson entered the University of California where she earned two more degrees. At the time Jackson enrolled at Berkeley In 1920, there were 17 black students on campus, eight women and nine men.

While a student, she founded a local chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, a black sorority with chapters in the east, but none to date on the West Coast She would continue to be active with the sorority throughout her life, serving for a time as national president She Is credited with steering the group more the direction of social service, founding an Innovative health clinic for poor blacks In her home state of Mississippi.
