March 18 ,1868

The Fourteenth Amendment of the United States of America states that anyone born in the United States or made a citizen of the United States from another place  can not have the privileges of being a citizen taken away from them. Basically meaning no citizen can not have rights taken away from them, such as the right to vote. This amendment benefits African-Americans who constantly had their rights stolen because they were considered 3/5 of a person. With this amendment they will be treated just as anyone else would.
