O Nicodemus

Nicodemus National Historic Site


The promise of freedom sustained those who came to Nicodemus, Kansas. “Building life out of rock solid faith,” the “black gem of the frontier” would offer the formerly enslaved a chance to build a home of their own in the United States. Check out this behind the scenes look at poet Sunni Patterson’s spoken word performance of “O Nicodemus.” There is no audio description as the video consists of a single reader in front of a black background.
