And We Still Have A Long Way To Go

, , , , , | Learning | November 12, 2020

My mom grew up in a segregated suburb. Even though segregation was made officially illegal before she was born, housing discrimination continued for a long time and her school only had white students in her grade.

She shows me her elementary school yearbooks one day.

Mom: “Each year, when the yearbooks were printed, there was a picture of a black student that was never in any of my classes, and I didn’t know why the school kept making the same mistake. But eventually, as I got older, I realized that it was put in just to make the school appear to comply with integration laws. I just wanted you to know how far some people are willing to go to discriminate.”
