#158: Estranged in America
By Mark Isero • Issue #158 • View online
I want to begin today’s issue with my deep appreciation. Thank you for subscribing to The Highlighter. Thank you for opening this email every Thursday morning, and for reading the blurbs, and for clicking on the articles, and for talking about the newsletter with your friends, and for encouraging them to subscribe.
More than three years ago, I sent out the very first issue of what would later become The Highlighter. My goal then was the same as it is now: to share my favorite articles on race, education, and culture. I remember feeling nervous as I clicked send and sent the first issue off to Subscribers 1 and 2. (Hi Ben and Peter!)
Since Issue #1, the newsletter has grown a ton, thanks to your support. We’ve built this thing together — whether you’ve been subscribing for years or have recently joined. (Hi Eva and Claire and Vincent and Kim and Joe and Ashmeet!) Thank you.
I’m proud of what we’ve built. And I want The Highlighter to get even better and to grow even more. Your feedback is very important to me. Hit reply and tell me what you think. What have you liked? What could be better? Which articles have moved you?
If feedback is not your thing: Attend a happy hour, send me a great article or a photo of your pet, forward a friend your favorite issue and encourage them to subscribe, or leave me a quick message.
Thank you again. Now let’s get to this week’s articles!
