Which amendments of the constitution protect the rights of women African Americans?

The 15th amendment allowed African American males to vote, and the 19th amendment gave women the right to vote. Native Americans were not considered citizens until 1924, so they did not have the right to vote until then. Even after 1924, some states restricted Native American voting rights based on whether or not they paid property taxes. This discrimination continued until the 1950s. Though African American males were guaranteed the right to vote by the 15th amendment, and African American women by the 19th, many legal and social barriers were quickly created to impede actual voting. These barriers were made illegal in the Civil Rights Act of 1957. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 made all racial discrimination and segregation illegal.
