What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 23 in a series – “… officials distributed straw-stuffed sacks instead.”

“After their belongings were searched and found to be satisfactory, Obaachan’s family was given an apartment number and sent to pick up their mattresses. They later learned that they’d been lucky to get actual mattresses; when those ran out, the government officials distributed straw-stuffed sacks instead.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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