In February we talked about the documentary, “Blackdom.” Filmmaker Vince McDaniel is creating a feature film documentary about the New Mexico town. There is currently a GoFundMe campaign to support this project. You can learn more by visiting the film’s Facebook page and you can read our earlier post here.
Our tale “BLACKDOM” is about a black college-educated school teacher in the South tired of witnessing the daily degradation of his people. Feeling powerless to do anything about it, he begins to encourage African-Americans to report and challenge abuses in the Jim Crow-era South. After being run out of town by the KKK , he journeys to the New Mexico territory and establishes an all black town which flourishes during the turn of the 19th century. True New Mexico history!
