The purpose was to give former slaves the right to vote. But this did not include black women. The goverment created this amendment because people living in the South passed laws called the Jim Crow Laws. They discriminated against all blacks. The difference between these laws and Black Codes was that Jim Crow Laws involved blacks and whites and was after the Civil War, but Black codes were before the war and only involved blacks. An example of a Jim Crow Law would be one bathroom for black men and one for white men.
