  Sundown Towns: A Hidden Dimension of American Racism  
(Special Event)

Professor James Loewen, bestselling author of Lies My Teacher Told Me, presents a public lecture describing the establishment between 1890 and 1968 of thousands of "sundown towns" that systematically excluded African-Americans from living within their borders. Loewen's eye-opening history traces the sundown town's development and delineates the extent to which state governments and the federal government helped to create and maintain all-white communities through their lending and insuring policies.
