This broadside advertises the availability of land in Nicodemus, Graham County, Kansas, and encourages African-American emigration into the state. As noted on the poster, some African-American residents of Lexington, Kentucky, were moving to Nicodemus and consolidating themselves with the Nicodemus Town Company. Nicodemus was settled in 1877, and is the only surviving all-black settlement west of the Mississippi that was settled by former slaves during the Exoduster period after the Civil War. It is now a historic site administered by the National Parks Service.
