Why Is Ida B. Kinney Influential?

According to Wikipedia, Ida B. Kinney was an African-American civil rights activist. Early life Ida Ford, the granddaughter of slaves, was born in Lafayette County, Arkansas, the only child to Henry B. Ford and Bessie White. From age three, Ida lived with her grandparents, James T. and Anna Mariah White, who were former slaves that bought themselves out of slavery with the sale of cotton. They were very industrious people who taught her valuable lessons about the ethics of life and putting God first. During the early 1900s, women were not allowed to read or write so Kinney, a young girl, taught her grandmother to read and write, using the Bible.
