    Traveling While Black

    In 2022 one would think there are not still active sundown towns in the U.S.A. but that sadly is not the case. If you check out the latest tiktok video you will see an unfortunate recap of black man’s experience in Vidor, Texas:

    To set the context, Vidor, Texas is a sundown town that up to late 1960’s had signs that read “Ni**er Don’t Let the Sun Set on You in Vidor”. In 1982 there was was class action lawsuit filed due to racial discrimination of African Americans in East Texas. In 1992, Vidor gained national attention when the Klu Klux Klan drove out some of the town’s FIRST African American residents. In 2022, black people still warn to not even get gas in Vidor, and the recent TikTok video mentioned seeing a black doll, wrapped in a confederate flag, hanging by a tree from its neck.

    Just do you know Vidor is about 15 minutes from Beaumont, Texas and less than 2 hours away from Houston.

    Additionally, there are also some articles outlining the history of sundown towns and a list of some of them in Texas and Florida that can be helpful as well.
