'That’s not for us': Alienation's a common thread in the stories of black Lockportians

Jayde McDonald, 22, on growing up in Lockport: “Even if I hung out with a white girl for the first time I would always ask, ‘Are your parents OK with black people? Like have you ever had a black person in your house?’ It’s so heavy because what if they see me and they say, you can’t come in. I remember always asking that of my friends.”
