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.
