This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Wichita, Kansas, July 21, 1911 and dying in Corona, California on January 25, 1999, Vera Ruth Jackson was a photographer.  An African-American, she spent her teenage years in Corona, California.

In 1936, Jackson began to take government-sponsored photography classes taught by George Manuel, where she learned about the use of camera equipment, as well as processing techniques.  Jackson was hired as a staff photographer for the California Eagle, where she photographed all aspects of society, ranging from sports events to the theater.

After accumulating a large body of works in the 1940s, Jackson left the newspaper to continue her education, receiving her BA and MA degrees in education and began to teach in the Los Angeles City School system.  Jackson traveled around the world, including four trips to Africa, taking photographs.
