What would you have done?

Title

What would you have done?

Description

The 15th Amdt passed Congress in Feb 1869. By the time it was ratified a year later, the post-war coalition for Black and female suffrage was done. In its place were two competing women’s suffrage organizations. More on them ahead. But before we move on: what would you have done?

If you were in those rooms debating, what would you say? Would you have supported the 15th Amdt, w/votes for Black men but not Black women? Black men and not white women? Would you have denounced it, when by 1869 it was the best revision our racist Constitution was likely to get?
