You’re in luck, loyal readers: You’ve opened a great issue of The Highlighter (if I do say so myself). I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. This week’s lead article
focuses on the crazy college admissions process and the great lengths that parents go to in order to help their kids gain an upper hand. The other articles — on white fragility, the search for enlightenment via religion and drugs, and gentrification — are pretty solid, too. Please enjoy!
Highlighter Happy Hour #10
is coming soon! Get your free ticket now
to secure your spot at this esteemed gathering. Join 50+ loyal readers on Thursday, June 6, beginning at 5:30 pm, over at our usual spot, Room 389
in Oakland. I’m looking forward to seeing you there to celebrate that summer’s almost here! Want more details
One last thing: I want to thank all of you again for your support and readership. The last 3+ years, the goal of The Highlighter has been to share with you the best articles on race, education, and culture. But together, we’ve built something more than that — a reading community, an article club, where we talk about the articles, and we listen to each other, and we connect and expand our knowledge across difference. Thank you!
