Race and Place: a personal account of unequal access.

What is the white cathedral?

Tracie Hall describes the white cathedral as "A gleaming white, newly blue-carpeted edifice to self-learn-ing." she describes it as having endless rows of reading material and comfy chairs, even including some bean bags. She describes how the staff of the white cathedral was racially diverse, and spoke in quiet voices, and acted almost like children. However, Hall also says how to her and her mother and grandmother, the white cathedral seemed to be almost taunting, being representative of the superiority of the people who lived in the region near the "white cathedral." It was drastically different then the "yellow palace" to which she had been so used to visiting.
