Description

The 15th and 19th Amendments to the US Constitution. The year 2020 will mark the anniversaries of two amendments to the US Constitution that expanded the nation’s ideas about citizenship and extended the right to vote to African American men and to women. To commemorate the ratifications of the Fifteenth Amendment (1870) and the Nineteenth Amendment (1920) to the US Constitution, the Cleveland State University history department and the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County will sponsor a yearlong series of events on the theme of “Suffrage: The 15th and 19th Amendments.” This book serves as an online resource, providing primary documents and links to other online primary source repositories, syllabi, schedules, lesson plans, and exercises for teachers, and papers to be presented at an academic conference scheduled for October 2020.
