Thank you for this article. I recently did research on Sundown Towns for a poem I wrote (link below) and I found the subject fascinating because, as a black man, there are still so many neighborhoods and suburbs that I still don't feel welcome in after dark. It's like US society has evolved but can't get past prejudice because it's truly America's oldest tradition...and traditions die hard.
