barry tells me about race relations in the US, giving up his seat for a white lady, and more
This is a series in which you help me learn about America.
Barry is a 50 year-old African-American man who was born Jackson, Tennessee and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Today he lives in Brighton, Michigan (about 40 miles west of Detroit), and works at Ford Motor Company as an Engineer with his wife of 21 years and 13 year-old daughter. He was kind enough to tell me about his take on race relations in the US, and I hope you find his stories as interesting as I did!
