Synopsis

Content Warning: This conversation has the presence of outdated, biased, offensive language. Rather than remove this content, we present it in the context of twentieth-century social history to acknowledge and learn from its impact and to inspire awareness and discussion. Loneliness and hardships of both fitting in and finding a job are covered in the continuation of Horace Cayton's, "Long Old Road: An Autobiography." By living in a middle class home in Seattle with a full time Japanese servant, Cayton was seen as better off than most people.
