Black Russia, Circa 1990.

Black Russia, Circa 1990

When I first encountered a black person, I was a 5 year old kid living in Kazakhstan (then stillpart of the Soviet Union, now Russia). Not knowing a damn thing about slavery, racism, civil rights, or prejudice, I simply thought he was magical.

This is a story about that encounter.
