What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 11 in a series – “…anyone in a leadership position in the community—could be considered suspicious.”

August 5th, 2019

”All along the West Coast, Japanese fishing vessels were intercepted by officers of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. The fishermen were escorted to land and questioned; some were arrested. Community leaders, Buddhist priests, teachers—essentially anyone in a leadership position in the community—could be considered suspicious.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant
