In 1906, signs warning the black population of Evening Shade in Sharp County to leave began to appear and a local black man, Joe Brooks, was shot and wounded. Most of the black community left in fear of their lives. -- John A. Kirk, "'No Malaria, No Mosquitoes, No Negroes': Constructing a History of Race and Ethnic Relations in Northwest Arkansas," paper given at seminar, U of AR Fayetteville .
