The C.O.W.S. James Loewen’s Sundown Towns: A Hidden Dimension of American White Supremacy Part 3

Thursday, March 21st 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific


The Context of White Supremacy hosts our second study session on James Loewen’s classic, Sundown Towns: A Hidden Dimension of American Racism. Loewen, a White man, has authored a number of popular history books that address Racism. In addition to Sundown Towns, Loewen’s Lies My Teachers Told Me, also examines the ways Whites obscure their record of terrorism. Last week’s session outlined a foundation for the book, exploring how the System of White Supremacy utilized violence, covenants statues and any means necessary to keep black people out of their geographic area. Loewen emphasizes that most of these “sundown towns” were in northern cities. The White author repeatedly invokes the term “race relations” when describing how Whites brutalized and raped black people for centuries.



The C.O.W.S. Radio Program is specifically engineered for black & non-white listeners – Victims of White Supremacy. The purpose of this program is to provide Victims of White Supremacy with constructive information and suggestions on how to counter Racist Woman & Racist Man.

  1. Glad to see renewed attention paid to Keith Beauchamp’s video work on sundown towns. Every one of these towns needs to take three steps to transcend their white supremacist past: (1) Admit it. (“We did this.”) (2) Apologize. (“We did this and it was wrong and we’re sorry.”) (3) “And we don’t do it any more.” And that last step needs to have teeth.
    If YOU know of sundown towns not listed at my website, tell me about them, with details. That will at LEAST help cause step (1) to take place. Thank you. — Jim Loewen — “jloewen ‘at’”
