Follow Me Down to Nicodemus Town: Based on the History of the African American Pioneer Settlement



When Dede sees a notice offering land to black people in Kansas, her family decides to give up their life of sharecropping to become homesteading pioneers in the Midwest. Inspired by the true story of Nicodemus, Kansas, a town founded in the late 1870s by Exodusters–former slaves leaving the Jim Crow South in search of a new beginning–this fictional story follows Dede and her parents as they set out to stake and secure a claim, finally allowing them to have a home to call their own.
