What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 17 in a series – ”None of our non-Japanese neighbors were willing to help,”

August 11th, 2019

”None of our non-Japanese neighbors were willing to help,” Obaachan says, shaking her head and setting her fork on her plate. “They wouldn’t store things for us, or assist in any way. These were people we’d known for years, people who’d watched my siblings and me grow up. But all of a sudden, they wanted nothing to do with us. We were on our own.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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