A new exhibition at the New Mexico History Museum illuminates the legacy of African-American communities in our state. The show focuses on three areas: Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Blackdom—an all-black settlement near Roswell, formed around 1901. The Federal Homestead Act of 1862 caused more than 100,000 Southern African-Americans to move West to claim land and settle. Learn about immigration, family life, religion and the fight against segregation through the life stories of some fascinating individuals, such as Clara Belle Drisdale Williams—the first African-American to graduate from New Mexico State University.
