The all-Black towns of Oklahoma represent a unique chapter in American history.

According to the Oklahoma Historical Society website, nowhere else, neither in the Deep South nor in the Far West, did so many African-American men and women come together to create, occupy and govern their own communities. From 1865 to 1920 African-Americans created more than 50 identifiable towns and settlements, with 13 still in existence in Oklahoma.
