Oshkosh Video Introduction:
In 2011, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh students produced a short documentary titled, “When the Sun Goes Down in Oshkosh.” While the film does not definitively name Oshkosh as a sundown town, the project explores race relations in present-day Oshkosh and reviews the events of Black Thursday—a protest in 1968 in which 94 black college students were arrested and expelled after participating in a sit in. The documentary exemplifies the sort of work that can result from researching potential sundown towns, even for researchers with no previous experience. For more information regarding how to confirm or disconfirm sundown towns, see Dr. Loewen’s essay on the subject.
