Certainly not the first time , but a very memorable event my family experienced racism was in 1968 in Tennessee. Transplants due to being deployed during the Vietnam Nam war, we were not cognizant of how things operated in the South. I employed a lady to help me clean and take care of my three young babies, all under the age of 17 months! Because she lived in the country, her husband dropped her off in the morning and my husband planned to take her back home in the afternoon.
