Is Your UU Church in a Historic Sundown Town?

I checked out Dr. James Lowen’s Sundown Town Database, and contributed to my hometown’s history.  Oregon was something of a Sundown State as far as I’m concerned.  Still seems to be in some parts unfortunately.  Nice UU World article about all this.  GA has featured Dr. Lowen in the past.

  1. Joseph — First Unitarian Church of Dallas TX is actually located in University Park TX.

    For most of their history University Park TX and Highland Park TX (collectively known as “Park Cities”) have been used by Dallas area residents who want to live in a racially segregated community while also enjoying the advantages of living in a large city like Dallas TX.

    The de-facto racial segregation for this community was mentioned in the final report to the UUA Board on the 2005 General Assembly incidents.
