Although many chose to become "tenant farmers" as a means of survival, it was not the majority. I believe the correct answer is (b)

The Emancipation Proclamation was limited in its scope and did not guarantee political equality. The 15th Amendment, passed in 1870, did give all men the right to vote. However, it was still difficult in many places for blacks to cast their votes.
