Blackdom, New Mexico

A Virtual Presentation on the history of the only incorporated all-black town in New Mexico.

Dr. Timothy E. Nelson’s multi-faceted work concerns racism, ambition, and the search for opportunity. These themes were revealed in his 2015 Ph.D. dissertation The Significance of the Afro-Frontier in American History. Dr. Nelson was born in South Central LA, raised in Compton, during the early 1990s in the wake of race and class-based conflict with the LAPD. He earned his Ph.D. from (UTEP) the University of Texas at El Paso. Currently, he is a full-time Lecturer at CSU Stanislaus and is working with a University Press to release his first book. []Time
