Jim Crow of the North: 6 Things You Need to Know about ‘Sundown Towns’

Across the nation, there have been thousands of communities that kept out African Americans by force, law, or custom. These communities are sometimes called “sundown towns” because some of them posted signs at their city limits that said something like, “Nigger, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On You In ___.” Some towns are still all white on purpose.
