More by this author
You live in Natchez, Mississippi during the 50s
You are denied because of "White Only"
Water fountains "white only"
Bus station" white only"
Restaurants "white only"
You wait in the rear of the dentist office
You use outdated books from the white public school
You sit in the balcony seats of the movie theatre
Dime store "white only "
Hotel "White only"
Train depot "White only"
You are killed or beaten for voting
Living like human beings White only"
