A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER of Black women and Black women’s organizations not only supported woman suffrage on the eve of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment but attempted to exercise their rights to vote immediately after the amendment’s passage in 1920.

Consequently, discontented Black feminists anticipated the disillusionment that their white counterparts encountered after 1920. An examination of the problems Black women faced on the eve of the passage of the woman suffrage amendment and the hostility Black women voters endured after the amendment passed serves as a preview of their political status from 1920 to 1945.
