What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 32 in a series – “…that their identification numbers were displayed on the white tags…”

August 26th, 2019

“When her family’s turn to leave Pomona finally arrived, for the second time in five months, they packed up their belongings in their five leather suitcases and the three canvas bags she and her cousins had sewn. Before they left their fairground room, her father checked to make sure each piece of luggage was labeled with their family name, and, more importantly, that their identification numbers were displayed on the white tags that hung from the handles.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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