What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 22 in a series – “…at least until other plans were in place.”

August 16th, 2019

“Named after the ancient Roman goddess of fruit, the city of Pomona was a little town originally known for its fertile land and its abundant fruit trees. Thirty miles west of Los Angeles, it offered a perfect holding spot for the Japanese. It was close enough that the prisoners could be transported there quickly, and it was far enough away from the coast to put General DeWitt and the War Relocation Authority at ease—at least until other plans were in place.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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