#260: Raising A Black Family In White America
By Mark Isero • Issue #267 • View online
Let’s begin this edition with some gratitude. This week, I received several kind notes from you, thanking me for continuing to publish this newsletter every Thursday despite our wild times and orange skies. I won’t lie: I’ve thought once or twice about taking a week off. But it’s clear that reading helps me process what’s happening out there, plus it’s an honor to share my favorite articles with you. I’m extremely appreciative that you show up week after week, trusting me with your reading time. Thank you!
Now comes the part where I tell you that every single piece this week is outstanding (true), that I highly recommend the lead article by Ijeoma Oluo (especially if you’re a parent), that even if you’re not a science person, you’ll enjoy “State Of The Species” (so much new knowledge!), that Florida should concern you (obviously), and that, as Ta-Nehisi Coates emphasizes, high-quality writing is a rare gift. Thank you again for being a loyal reader, and please enjoy.
