Exodusters Go West: The Settlement of Nicodemus, Kansas

Thursday, November 14, 2019

Talk by Angela Bates, executive director, Nicodemus Historical Society
The story of Nicodemus, a community in western Kansas founded by Exodusters—African Americans who migrated to this state after the Civil War—is often omitted from historical accounts of Westward Expansion in the United States. Bates will share her research on this “icon of the African-American experience in the West,” now a National Historic Site of the U.S. National Park Service.
This talk is in conjunction with the exhibition John Steuart Curry: The Cowboy Within on view at the Beach Museum of Art September 24, 2019-March 21, 2020
