I Live at the Edge of a Very Strange Country by Jen Drociak


I Live at the Edge of a Very Strange Country

Daphne is one of the few black people residing in Pleasantville, which is predominantly white. As such, she is always in need of looking over her shoulder, literally and figuratively. During a time of continued racial discrimination and segregation, yet when the civil rights movement began, the world for Daphne was not yet safer, especially in Pleasantville where she stands out in an obvious way. Note: This was the ONLY person of color or ethnicity other than Caucasian featured in the eight magazines I read and cut from, otherwise I would have included more.
