For many years after Reconstruction thousands of communities kept out African Americans by force, law, or custom. They are sometimes called "sundown towns" because some of them posted signs at their city limits reading, typically, "Nigger, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On You In ___." This video won first place in the Junior Documentary Division, 2008 National History Day in Ohio. Created by Kyle Bolyard, Miles Cooper, Jonathan Crabbs, Samuel Hill, and Stephen Sharkey.
