What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 14 in a series – “…been forced back by armed posses at the border of Nevada.”

August 8th, 2019

 

”Obaachan’s family did not try this voluntary evacuation. Instead, they stayed put, which, it turned out, was for the best. Those families who attempted to leave on their own were met with hostility, and all across Los Angeles, accounts of failed attempts were whispered about and passed along. My grandmother no doubt heard these stories. In her neighborhood, she could have learned of someone who’d been forced back by armed posses at the border of Nevada.”

 

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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