Blackdom is the story of Frank & Ella Boyer’s dream to create a “colony” for Black people in the prairie of Southeastern New Mexico. Walking form Georgia to New Mexico, Francis Boyer left behind the oppression and racial violence of post Civil War Georgia to found this separatist community where he said “there was no one to help us and no one to hinder.”
