What you should know about voting rights…
by Tula Jeng, @sisterpersister
“In 1920, the #19thAmendment granted some women the right to vote — but not all. Chinese Americans were denied the vote until 1943. Japanese and other Asian Americans didn’t receive voting rights until 1952. Although the 19th Amendment “technically” included Black and Latina women, many Black people were still denied access to the ballot — especially in the South. Voter-suppression measures such as poll taxes, literacy tests, and grandfather clauses, were all used to prevent Black people from participating in electoral politics. For Latinos, if they did not speak and write English, they were refused ballots in many cities and states.”
