1972, frightened seeing first black man

Nicoletta Fusi,
Italy

I was six years old and I was in Paris with my parents, first trip for tourism. sitting for some rest on a bench in a park, when a black garbageman approached me with kind words (which I don’t remember!), but I was so frightened beacause I had never seen a black man before, at that time Italy was an all-white country!
