At the core of Dr. Timothy E. Nelson's work, in 1903, Blackdom Townsite Company boasted co-founders who believed freedom wasn’t enough after emancipation. Black people chose equal-and-separate in the Borderlands. During and after American Reconstruction, Black people reached sovereignty and used institutionalized knowledge skills and abilities in the occupation of all-Black municipalities as well as other frontier spaces. The advent of the Blackdom experiment was an outgrowth of the Black military experience that nurtured self-reliance, self-governance, and cooperation amongst Black people. Quarantined from Whiteness, Blackdom’s significance included the clear articulation of Black people's intentions.
