Description
Spotlighting an overlooked chapter in American history, Going Home to Nicodemus tells the true story of an all-Black town founded in Kansas more than a century ago by former slaves. In the aftermath of the Civil War, many freed slaves found themselves without homes or a way to make a living. Their struggles to found a town in the barren plains of the American West is a gripping narrative of determination, perseverance-and success. For today, Nicodemus, Kansas, is the oldest all-Black town west of the Mississippi, and each year the ties that bind the townspeople are renewed and the bravery of the first settlers remembered. Interspersed with quotes from past and present residents, this is the moving story of people who refused to give up.
