Black women played a critical - and often overlooked - role in women’s suffrage. Even in the face of racism within the movement, Black suffragists never wavered in their fight for the vote. They organized in their communities, attended political conventions, founded political societies and marched (unwelcomed) in suffrage parades.

After the ratification of the 19th amendment, black women faced the same disenfranchisement as black men did after the passing of the 15th amendment. Racist policies, intimidation and violence would keep black women from freely exercising their right to vote until the passing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965.

This luxuriously soft tee features a slouchy fit and wide neckline that can be pulled off the shoulder.
