What I’m Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.

July 26th, 2019

This new series is an ongoing collection of quotes from the books I am currently reading. — Douglas


What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.

“When the four of us were young,” she says, hesitating, “we spent Sunday afternoons at the beach.” Their beach, that is: the only one they were allowed on, Brighton Beach. They weren’t permitted to go to Venice Beach, or to Santa Monica Beach or to any of the other beaches in Los Angeles. Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant
