Black Women Had to Fight for the Right to Vote on Two Fronts
Black suffrage - Wikipedia
After the Civil War, women's rights activists disagreed about whether to support ratification of the 15th Amendment , which provided voting rights regardless of race, but which did not explicitly enfranchise women. The resulting split in the women's movement marginalized African-American women, who nonetheless continued their suffrage activism. The struggle for the vote did not end with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in ,  which expanded voting rights substantially, but did not address the racial terrorism that prevented African-Americans in southern states from voting, regardless of sex. The origins of the women's suffrage movement are tied to the Abolitionist movement. Upper-class white women in particular first articulated their own oppression in marriage and the private sphere using the metaphor of slavery, and they first developed a political consciousness by mobilizing in support of abolitionism.

19th Amendment anniversary: A timeline of 100 years of voting rights for women
The 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which barred states from considering a voter's sex in determining eligibility, is commonly credited with expanding the right to vote to women, but the amendment didn't actually guarantee all women the right to vote. Although the amendment, which was ratified years ago Tuesday, eased the obstacles some women faced at the ballot box, Black women still faced legal barriers. The centennial, coming the same year as the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and the th anniversary of the 15th Amendment — the amendment that granted Black men the right to vote — marks just one of several major anniversaries in America's complex voting rights history.
In the immediate aftermath of the Civil War , the United States found itself in uncharted territory. For Black Americans, gaining the full rights of citizenship—and especially the right to vote—was central to securing true freedom and self-determination.
