Don’t let the sun go down on you in this town.” We equate these words with the Jim Crow South but, in a sweeping analysis of American residential patterns, award-winning and bestselling author James W. Loewen demonstrates that strict racial exclusion was the norm in American towns and villages from sea to shining sea for much of the twentieth century.
"Eine atemberaubende neue epische Fantasy-Serie. Morgan Rice hat es wieder einmal geschafft! Diese magische Saga erinnert an das Beste von J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini und J.R.R. Tolkien. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen!" – Allegra Skye, Bestseller-Autor von SAVED Nach…
Weaving history, personal narrative, and hard-nosed analysis, Loewen shows that the sundown town was-and is-an American institution with a powerful and disturbing history of its own, told here for the first time. In Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, sundown towns were created in waves of violence in the early decades of the twentieth century, and then maintained well into the contemporary era.
Sundown Towns redraws the map of race relations, extending the lines of racial oppression through the backyard of millions of Americans-and lobbing an intellectual hand grenade into the debates over race and racism today.
