Lynwood was so well known as a sundown town
that it was often called “Lily White Lynwood”.
“I recall stories of people camped out in their
own driveways [during the Watts riots] with shotguns
and other such hardware to protect their property
from (insert the ethnic slur of your choice here).”
When Lynwood broke in the 1970s, the resulting
white flight made the town mostly non-white.
