In a series of tweets, Beatty insisted that the requirements from identification to vote were not acceptable.

‘Black women are demanding OUR right to vote! We’re marching to the Senate to send a strong message.  We will not be turned around. We will keep walking,” she tweeted.

‘We will fight for freedom. We will fight for our right to vote!’
