What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 44 in a series – “…the one hakujin who had willingly come there as a prisoner….”

September 8th, 2019

”But of all the interesting and unusual people my grandmother came into contact with at Heart Mountain, perhaps most memorable of all would be the one hakujin who had willingly come there as a prisoner. The woman was tall and had shoulder-length blonde hair, and in the sea of shorter, black-haired inmates, she was always easily spotted. Her name was Estelle Ishigo, and after the evacuation from the West Coast was announced, she had decided to go with her Japanese husband.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

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