First saw black person at 16

Daniel Schram
Boise, ID

I live in a part of the country that even today has less than 1% black people in it. I’m a 60+ year old white man who grew up with many hispanic and asian kids. But, until a attended an exhibition basketball game in a nearby city at the age of sixteen, the only blacks I ever saw were on television. Since then, I have met and become friends with several black people, mostly through work and church. But, there are still very few in my world.
