Absolutely not i realize that. She had to become the sole provider for herself in her siblings and planned for next steps. Accordingly ida dropped out of school in did the impossible. Although ida was in her early teens reportedly to be aged sixteen at the most of the time for parents death she was able to convince a local county administrator that she was eighteen years old and secured a job as a teacher. We can already see how her parents early influence lived on through artists dedication to education after a few years working in mississippi ardy decided to move her family to memphis tennessee or a close family member.

When ida attempted to board the first clash train in sit in her paid for seat the train conductors demanded that she moved to another car that was designated for african americans. Ida as any sensible person would refused. She had paid for ticket and was rightly entitled to sit in her current place in first class naturally. The train operators became enraged. The nation was still so polarized after the civil war and although african americans were free they were not at all treated as human beings. Let alone equals who are afforded basic rights. A black woman such as ida standing up for herself with unacceptable to say the least ida was forcibly removed from the train. But not without a fight it was reported that ida was able to injure one of the men though. I'm sure not at all what was deserved based on her treatment. But i didn't stop the fight there. She filed a lawsuit against the train company and initially won the case and was awarded settlement after an appeal to the federal level. The case was overturned in the original verdict. Vacated idle lost her settlement and was ordered.
