African American Grants

african american grants
how many years passed between guaranteeing African American men the right to vote and granting woman suffrage?

please tell me!

Black men were given the right to vote in 1865 at the end of the Civil War. However the law wasn’t enforced. Black men were kept from voting usually. But that changed in 1965 when President Johnson signed the Voters Right Act.
Women have been allowed to vote since 1920.
