A Negro settlement in Kansas; and newspaper clippings
This volume contains an essay written by Robert Hackenberg which chronicles the history and development of the town of Nicodemus located in Graham County. Nicodemus was one of the first black colonies established in the state of Kansas after the Emancipation Proclamation.
Also included in the back of the volume are three newspaper clippings from 1959 about the town of Nicodemus and its inhabitants. Two of the clippings relate the history of the town through the 1950s. The third clipping is an article by William Mzhickteno about Veryl Switzer, a descendant of the early Nicodemus colony and former halfback at Kansas State University.
