Sundown Towns

Elena Esquibel will dramatize her research into sundown towns this weekend at 8 p.m. in the Marion Kleinau Theater. Performances are Thursday the 27 through Saturday the 30.

According to author Jim Loewen, Illinois has the largest number of confirmed sundown towns (approx 440) in the nation, with Anna having signs posted on the outskirts of town as late as 1954.
