Problem

Problem

The problem:

After the Civil War , people were divided on whether blacks should be able to VOTE.

Many thought that Congress had

NO right to give voting rights to blacks.

NO!


Solution

Solution

To SOLVE this:

In 1865 some republicans started to press for blacks to be able to vote.

Many argued on this topic…

After LONG debating, they knew black rights had to be finished up , then made the 15th Amendment ratified.

How this effects us

How this effects US?

  • We could not have had Mr. Obama as our first

    African American

    US president.

    ~10/10 importance level~

    If African Americans

    were not able to vote, we would not be the EQUAL and justice place we are today.
