When Did African Americans Get to Vote?

African American men were constitutionally given the right to vote with the passage of the 15th Amendment. The 19th Amendment expanded voting rights to all women. The 24th Amendment banning poll taxes in federal elections, which had kept many African Americans from voting, was passed in 1964. The Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965 which finally eliminated the remainder of voting barriers like literacy tests, state poll taxes, and grandfather clauses. Look here for more information:
