Well hello there, and welcome to Issue #76! Please welcome new subscribers Karolina, Sarah, Eric, Alicia, Lynn, S, and Pwh. (Extras is blowing up!) This issue is about reading and resistance. Hope that’s OK with you! In this time of upheaval and uncertainty, where things don’t make sense, reading is making a comeback. The first three articles offer various perspectives on the role of reading — and may encourage you to read an additional article or book or two!
Then, after a journalism break, enjoy two excellent pieces about resistance. The first chronicles the life and imprisonment of Albert Woodfox, an original member of the Black Panther Party. The second introduces us to new activists in San Francisco.
This time that we’re in requires more reading, and more reflection, and more community, and more collaboration. Thank you, loyal subscribers, for making Extras part of your life!
