African Americans couldn’t officially attend the democratic convention until 1924.
The 15th amendment gave black men the right to vote under law?
The Black Codes was enacted to strictly govern the behavior of black citizens, which were later reestablished as The Jim Crow Laws.
Most black women waited five decades after the 19th amendment for the right to vote.
Our history is as equally as important as our present and our future as it relates to the changes we want to see in our country that are heavily influenced by who we elect into office.
