This story is a continuation from one of the stories in The Martian Chronicles where African Americans decide to travel to Mars in order to escape the oppression on Earth. Now that Earth has been destroyed due to the nuclear wars, the people on Earth need a new place to call home, and their only option is Mars. I think Bradbury did a brilliant job in telling this story, and the ending left me pleasantly surprised.

Es una historia que te hace reflexionar bastante

Another Creative Classics short story. The series overview says that the editors hope to pull short stories from the obscurity of "dark, musty anthologies." As someone who reads anthologies already, it seems like a strange statement. But whatever.

I can't remember if I have read this story in anthology before. It is now interesting mainly as an oddity of time and place. Written in the 60's it deals with African-Americans who have colonized Mars but who come face to face with a white refugee from

I read this as part of an anthology rather than a stand alone book. It made me cry and every time I re-read it I cry again. I found it very real and the characters move me so much and yet it has its moments of humour and through it all is a fine understanding of human nature infused with optimism.

Picked this up a long time ago off a used book or free book table. If I'd known it was only 35 pages long I would have read it a long time ago. It was good.

A very short sci-fi type of story on racism. I'd consider it worth the time it takes to read (about 15 minutes).

A bit dated and simplistic, because it's a concept-driven story, but definitely a worthwhile quick read.

A fast read with lovely painted pictures. Gives a look at forgiveness and moving on.
