Reprint. 60,000 first printing.

Book Description: Touchstone Books, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 233 x 157 mm. Brand New Book. No blacks allowed, especially after dark. This was the unwritten rule in a sundown town. In his trademark revelatory style, bestselling author James W. Loewen explores one of America s best-kept secrets as he unearths the making of sundown towns and discloses the fact that many white neighborhoods and suburbs are the result of years of racism and segregation. Anna, Illinois; Darien, Connecticut; and Cedar Key, Florida, are just a few examples of the thousands of all-white towns established between 1890 and 1968, many of which still exist today. White residents of these towns used any means possible -- including the law, harassment, race riots, and even murder -- to keep African Americans and other minority groups out. Powerful and unprecedented, Sundown Towns tells the story of how these towns came into existence, what maintains them, and what to do about them. It also deepens our understanding of the role racism has played and continues to play in our society. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780743294485
