What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 20 in a series – ”Were this type of roundup to happen in my own day,…”

August 14th, 2019

This is a particularly apt quote for today. Would we/will we oppose it? Are we opposing it? I’m not sure we are doing enough. — Douglas

”Were this type of roundup to happen in my own day, I feel confident that my generation—my post–civil rights, optimistic, unafraid generation—would unite to oppose what it would undoubtedly deem unjust. But, as my grandmother has pointed out to me, we did not grow up in the same world.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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