Kansas Black Farmers Association

The Kansas Black Farmers Association a 501 c 3 IRS-Certified Charitable Organization, (KBFA) was founded in 1999 by farmers of Nicodemus, Kansas, for mutual support and cooperative agricultural market development. Nicodemus, located in northwest Kansas, is the only remaining western town established by African Americans during the Reconstruction period following the Civil War. Today Nicodemus, a National Historic Site since 1996, represents the unique and valuable legacy of Black homesteaders' determination and ability to sustain themselves despite all the economic, environmental, social, and political odds.
