ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution or Civil war amendments ratified in 1868 which was aimed to reconstruct the southern states of U.S. and protect the Blacks through extending their freedom and rights. It notes that the implementation of Fourteenth Amendment had experienced limitations including the Supreme Court Ruling Slaughterhouse cases, the case Plessy v. Ferguson and the creation of Civil Rights Cases by the Supreme Court, in which these result to the continuance of race discrimination. However, with the changes in public opinion and the emergence of social consciousness, the Fourteenth Amendment was given recognition by the Supreme Court and federal government which helped fulfill its implementation.
