“Lifting As We Climb”

Although the 19th Amendment declared that the right to vote cannot be denied on the basis of sex, it did not guarantee voting access. Citizenship laws, poll taxes, threats, and violence barred African American, Latina, Native American, Asian American, immigrant, and poor women. Many African American women could not vote unimpeded until 1965 with the passage of the Voting Rights Act—long after the 19th Amendment went into effect. The National Museum of African American History and Culture shares five African American suffragists whom students should know about in order to understand a broader history of the struggle for women’s suffrage.
