173. I read about this a few years ago
and Loewen has a website with lists of towns, organized by state.

http://www.uvm.edu/~jloewen/content.php?file=sundowntow...

If you click on the towns, it'll give you information about what happened there, and why he thinks it was a sundown town.

Terrific resource, and absolutely depressing how many towns had "whites-only" policies.

(I know this thread is about African-American history, but did you know that virtually every town in California once had a Chinatown? And the Chinese were violently expelled from most of these towns? Black history is not the only history that is not taught.)
