| "Until at least a few years ago they had a welcome sign at the city limits that read 'Welcome to Dover:
Don't Let the Sun Set on Your Black Ass'."
-Arkansas State University professor
I heard some variation of the sentence, 'Blacks shouldn%u2019t go to Dover and definitely not after dark' more times than I can remember when I was growing up. There%u2019s been at one lynching in the town, according to oral history."
