Best Answer

Following the civil war Radical Republicans in Congress introduced a series of laws and amendments to secure civil and political rights for former slaves. In 1867 Congress passed a law requiring the former confederate states to include black male suffrage in their new state constitutions. Even though African American men began voting in the south after 1867, but the majority of northern states denied them this basic right. In 1869 the Republicans were ready to introduce the 15th amendment and in February of 1869 Congress approved the amendment.

What amendment gave thee blacks a right to vote?

amendment 15 amendment 15 While the 15th Amendment is what prohibited the states from using race as a means to deny the right to vote. The times being what they were, though, in no way did the 15th create equal - or even open - access to voting. Poll taxes were one of the major ways local governments disenfranchised minorities and the poor; poll taxes were made illegal by the 24th Amendment. Therefore, it was actually a combination of the 15th and 24th Amendments that franchised black citizens.
