As you write, the previous answer and the Seneca Falls Convention will be useful to you. But you will also have to address how the Jim Crow laws in the Southern States affected the voting rights of the African American women. If you are focusing exclusively on suffrage rights of African American Women, the following links will prove useful to you as you do your research.
