The Grandfather Clause was a clause that was instituted by several southern states in the United States of America during the Reconstruction, making it virtually impossible for African Americans to vote. The seven states that enacted the Grandfather Clause or some variation were Louisiana, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Virginia.
