What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 27 in a series – “…did not know where else to go or what else to do…”

August 25th, 2019

“The truth was, at this point Papa did not know which way to turn. In the government’s eyes a free man now, he sat, like those black slaves you hear about who, when they got word of their freedom at the end of the Civil War, just did not know where else to go or what else to do and ended up back on the plantation, rooted there out of habit or lethargy or fear.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
