Publication history:


A lot of people seem to think that the races can't get along and never will, so what we need to do is live apart. In this future, White flight from the inner cities has left them the exclusive territory of Blacks. This story (very much a product of its own era) tries to give us a peek at what a segragated New York might be like from a Black perspective, good points and bad.
