Black Communities in the Old West

Black Communities in the Old West addresses the phenomena of the founding of the black pioneer towns in the West. By 1920, over fifty towns had been settled in the United States by African Americans seeking to escape the hardships and racial injustice so prevalent while living in the South after the Civil War (1861-1865). Noted here are the three most prominent of the western communities (in some detail) and a short list of some others around the U.S. for reference.

Blackdom, NM – 1903
