Angela organized efforts to establish The Nicodemus Historical Society in 1988 and became its first and only president. She established archives of photographs and other written material, held in the Kansas Collection - Spencer Research Library at the University of Kansas. She also organized community preservation efforts; worked with The Department of Interior (National Parks System); assisted in drafting the Nicodemus Bill; worked and coordinated with Senator Dole's Office and staff; and spearheaded the entire effort to preserve Nicodemus and its historic structures through its recent designation as National Historic Site (National Park). Angela continues her extensive research on the history of Nicodemus and her relatives that migrated from central Kentucky to become settlers and homesteaders. Her research efforts have led her to uncover much of the history of the African American in the West.
