No, the 13th Amendment only outlawed slavery. Government legislation has no power to relieve suffering. It took another 100 years for Black Americans to force the government to recognize that they were still being treated as second class citizens, including laws in some places that restricted their full access to their rights as citizens; social, economic, and political rights. In far too many instances, Black Americans could be treated with outright brutaliy without interference of law enforcement. Following the 13th Amendment, Black Americans had to deal with legalized segregation, social segregation, and restricted access to jobs and places to live. Following World War 1, they began to form organizations, like the NAACP and others, to formulate plans to overcome their restrictions. By the end of World War 2, they began to put their plans in motion. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, they initiated actions to demonstrate how their rights were being denied. Even now in the 21st century, the effort still goes on. Government actions can't end people's suffering, government can only provide the legal means for those people to do that work themselves.
