15th Amendment Artwork

For the 15th amendment I decided to choose an art piece that clearly expressed the meaning behind the amendment. Although the amendment is very simple, it was actually hard trying to find a piece that accurately defined the amendment. The piece I chose is a graphic design image, which has a voter button on it, people in the background, and interlocking hands. Starting with the interlocking hands, this image shows unity, which stems from equality. When unity is present, it is safe to say that everyone is equal, that is why they are united. The people in the background are two African Americans and one Caucasian. This also shows unity but more importantly that the African Americans can vote which was the goal of the 15th amendment; to give newly freed slaves the right to vote, presently, it gives all U.S. citizens the right to vote.
