        Voter Registration Training Tool

        In spite of the Fifteenth Amendment's ban on voting discrimination, many southern states used arbitrary voter registration tests to deny African Americans political access. Civil rights activists, including students at Miles College in Birmingham, used voter registration tools like these documents to fight discrimination. A question-and-answer sheet lists the answers to commonly asked questions on the tests; a questionnaire documents discrimination in the registration process.
