The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution had several profound effects on the lives of African Americans. First off, it overruled a prior ruling that African Americans could not be US citizens. Secondly, it prohibited state and local governments from depriving persons of life, liberty, and property without due process of law. Thirdly and most importantly, it guaranteed all citizens equal protection under the law, a clause that served as an important basis for the decision in Brown v. Board of Education (1954) that overturned segregation.
