Fall 2020 Events:

Dr. Timothy Nelson reading

Blackdom, New Mexico - October 15th at 5pm (Central); RSVP for Zoom link

Alumnus, scholar, advocate, and activist Dr. Timothy Nelson will give a 30 minute presentation on the forgotten history of Blackdom, New Mexico, sharing the untold stories of the Afro-Frontier®. Dr. Nelson merges Blackdom’s history with New Western History, Borderland Studies, Diasporic Studies and Blacks in the West, placing Afro-Frontierists® at the center of their histories, rather than as footnotes of other people’s histories. 

A 30 minute Q & A session will follow. 

Dive into Blackdom's rich history and Dr. Nelson's work by following the Blackdom Presentation Facebook Event. Connect with students and scholars passionate about Black history.
