What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 24 in a series – “…and other farm animals were cleaned out and transformed into homes for the prisoners.”

August 18th, 2019

“Living arrangements at Pomona had been created in two ways. There were barracklike buildings that had been thrown together as quickly as possible, and some of the existing fairground buildings had been partitioned into apartments as well. The barns, sheds, and exhibit buildings that had once housed cows, rabbits, horses, and other farm animals were cleaned out and transformed into homes for the prisoners.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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