The Voting Rights Act of 1965

Throughout the history of segragation against "African-Americans and Colored" citizens, we had a period when this caused the "Voting Rights Act of 1866." (1869 - 2013)


"Only 3% of eligible African-Americans in the south are registered to vote."

President Lyndon B. Johnson signs voting into law, for all native american's freedom to vote.

Here is an example of periods when there was segragation towards Colored & African-Americans.

This video shows President Johnson's path of triupmh to give native-americans the right of voting without segragtion.

This is a picture shows Richard Nixon signing an extention of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Civil Rigths have to be equal, not seperate. This is a lesson we learned during the period of segragation and the right to vote for all citizens.

Native and colored citizens are registered to now vote.


"More than 500 non-violent civil right marchers are atacked by native citizens the want the demand for African American voting."


"By the end of 1965, 250,000 new black voters are registerd. (One third of them by federal examiners)


Throughout 1970 to 2006 past presidents have signed an extention of the Voting Rights Act.


"Citizenship is granted, but voting rights to all native-born americans is prohibited."

Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Voting Right Act into law. Prohibiting any vote election against racial nationality.
