Comment on Grace Paley’s “Traveling”

It’s really interesting getting to know important parts of history with this level of detailing. We all know that situations like the one described by Grace Paley definitely have happened back in those times, but all we know, from most of the history books and records, is just that they happened. So it can be shocking reading a story from someone who actually have been through these circumstances, in real life, where they, by themselves, had to deal with real-life problems, specially when it comes to segregation because it’s a known fact that those times were really hard for American people of color.
