#106: This Is America

Good morning, and welcome to The Highlighter #106. Today’s issue focuses on Charlottesville. In an interview this week, Bryan Stevenson emphasized that we have not yet confronted our country’s narrative of white supremacy and our tragic history of racial inequality. We must. I am hopeful that the pieces in today’s issue of The Highlighter will spark reflection and conversation.

Charlottesville: Race and Terror
Historical Amnesia About Slavery Is a Tool of White Supremacy

Whose Heritage? Public Symbols of the Confederacy
