Racial prejudice prevails in US town

Descendants of war veterans say Nicodemus is a testament to what has been achieved.


    This week marks 150 years to the day when first shots were fired in the US Civil War.

    Al Jazeera has a series of special reports to mark the anniversary, starting with a visit to a piece of living history, the town of Nicodemus in the state of Kansas.

    It is the first and only remaining pioneer town built by and for black settlers.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from Nicodemus.
