From ‘Sundown Town’ to ‘Resolution’

In March 2015, the Common Council of the City of Goshen unanimously resolved to acknowledge the City’s history as a “sundown town.” In advocating for the resolution, Dan Shenk documented the history of sundown towns in Goshen and beyond in a PowerPoint presentation titled “Goshen, Indiana: From ‘Sundown Town’ in 20th Century to ‘Resolution’ in 21st Century.” The Community Resilience Guild invited Dan to present and record this presentation as part of the Wide Angle Films and Talks series. The presentation was followed by a conversation principally with Lee Roy Berry Jr., a local attorney and former political science professor who helped champion the passage of the resolution.

Maple City Health Care Center is not just a medical center; it’s a peace and justice organization, engaged in community development, whose entry point to the neighborhoods it serves is through health care. Many of the relationships and transactions involved are built on an “economy of trust”, the focus of this conversation with Dr. James Nelson Gingerich.
