#88: Poor, Gifted, and Black
By The Highlighter - Mark Isero • Issue #88 • View online
Hi there, loyal subscribers! I’m feeling pretty good about this issue. It includes 7 articles from various publications, covering new topics (e.g., education in South Africa, hot chicken in Nashville, disability in rural America) and following up on topics I’ve highlighted in the past (e.g., transphobia, fake news, S-Town, Ruth Bader Ginsburg). My hope is that you find that some of the topics I follow are ones you care about, too. Please enjoy!
