The 15th amendment granted the right to vote for African American men. Black women were not able to vote, not even white women could vote. The vote for women to vote was not granted until the 1920's.

15th Amendment

15th Amendment | Christina Nonnenmacher-15th amendment | Scoop.it
15th Amendment - The 15th amendment protects the rights of Americans to vote in elections to elect their leaders. Specifically, it confirms the right to vote and lists conditions that are illegal to deny another person the right to vote.
Christina Nonnenmacher's insight:

This article shows how the 15th amendment protects the rights of Americans to vote. Reguardless of race, color or being a former slave you are now allowed to vote. This also allowed African Americans to be elected into public office, which led to africans being able to associate with whites. Before the 15th amendment people who were slaves were not allowed to vote. It also explains how many states didnt want the 15th amendment because they didn't want chinese and irish immagrents voting for America's president.

15th Amendment - KH

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)
Christina Nonnenmacher's insight:

This video shows how mixed race people went in to vote for the election of their states representative.It showed how the voters got kicked out due to the fact that they were "different". They were saying that they would fight to have the right to vote until it was allowed, but no one would let them. The president told them that an amendment had been passed and reguardless what race they were they were allowed to vote. After the amendment was passed the African Americans were allowed to vote.

The 15th Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed that the right to vote could not be denied based on “race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
Christina Nonnenmacher's insight:

This article just explains what the 15th amendment is. It was adopted into the constituion March 30, 1870. Even though the amendament was passed people would still discrimate blacks. They would do anything to prevent blacks from voting.  Then finally after almost a year later everything became completely official so blacks were finally able to vote without any issues.
