Name Course instructor Subject Date Fourteenth Amendment Introduction Fundamentally the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified in 1868 five years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Majorly it accorded citizenship to everyone born or naturalized in the United States. Being one of the fundamental legal instruments enacted during the Reconstruction Era the 14th Amendment set out to assert legal and civil rights mainly for black Americans who were former slaves (Jones et al. 372). Following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the succession of Andrew Johnson as president in 1965 there was disquiet and fear of regression. Notably this fear and disquiet were brought about by the perceived leniency of President Johnson towards the Confederates. The 14th Amendment was precluded by the Civil Rights Act of 1866 which had to overcome President Johnson veto to be enacted. Following this enactment it became prudent to have constitutional protections to and their descendants who are born in the United States. Since its enactment the 14th Amendment has been found inadequate in realizing its initial objectives. Racial prejudice persisted in the south as Africans Americans were subjected to segragative ‘black codes’ that greatly limited their civil rights. Unintentionally the provision also limited the civil rights of women.
