Reviews

Praise for Sundown Towns:
Powerful and important . . . an instant classic.
--The Washington Post Book World

"Amazing."
--The Daily Kos

"Methodically upends many of white America's preconceived notions about race."
--The Chicago Reader

"The first comprehensive history of sundown towns ever written . . . sure to become a landmark in several fields."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Just when you thought you'd learned everything there was to know about the sordid history of racism in the United States and its lingering impact on the nation, along comes this amazing volume, which reminds us all of just how deep the well of racial exclusion and white supremacy runs."
--Tim Wise, author of White Like Me
