Encountering racism in Los Alamos

My name is Thalia Gibbs-Jackson. I’m a citizen of Los Alamos having moved here November of last year. I was born and grew up in a small town in South Georgia where I graduated high school and went to college. I later transferred to Atlanta and attended Georgia Tech and Southern Tech. I have worked for numerous companies and government contractors. I’ve travelled abroad and have loads of interests. I am also African-American.
I’ve been working for the Los Alamos Monitor as circulation manager for the past three months. My job involves me sometimes delivering papers for carriers who are out of town or have given up their routes. I’m meticulous in making sure that every person who has paid for a newspaper actually gets it delivered to their home in the manner they have requested.
