What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 19 in a series – “…We saw it as our duty.”

August 13th, 2019

What I'm Reading: Silver Like Dust - 19 in a series -

”Finally, buses with armed military police pulled up. Standing outside the bus, gripping their rifles and looking straight ahead, the police ordered everyone aboard. At this point still not knowing where they were headed, hundreds of people filed into the buses. Obedient, quiet. “Nobody resisted,” Obaachan remembers. “I think people had the mind-set that this was what we could do to help. We loved America just like everyone else, and if this was the way we could serve our country, we were willing to do it. We saw it as our duty.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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