#137: The Death Row Book Club
By Mark Isero • Issue #137 • View online
Welcome, loyal subscribers! Today’s issue of The Highlighter includes all my favorite topics: reading (of course — and also this month’s focus on the podcast), affirmative action, school resegregation, and voting rights. For good measure, you get repeat performances of Nikole Hannah-Jones, Alvin Chang, and Ari Berman (plus a hint of Bryan Stevenson). Please enjoy!
Also: I have two great events to invite you to. The first is Highlighter Happy Hour #5 next Thursday at Room 389 in Oakland. Get your free tickets here. The second is A Path to School Desegregation, a community roundtable in Oakland that loyal subscriber Ron Towns is leading on April 19. If you’re in the Bay Area, I hope to see you at both events!
