The Highlighter

Support The Highlighter!

Six years ago, I emailed a few articles to two close friends. It was the first issue of what would become The Highlighter.

Now, 310+ issues later, The Highlighter comes out week after week, giving you the best articles on race, education, and culture.

But it’s become more than that, too. We’ve built a reading community of curious, compassionate people who care about important issues. We’re eager to read, learn, and connect with each other.

This year, I have big dreams for The Highlighter. And I’m asking for your support to help make these dreams a reality:

  • Launch an article club. (Update: This is happening!) We read, annotate, and discuss one great article every month.

  • Connect with authors. (Update: This is happening!) Part of what makes Article Club special is that the authors participate, too — in our discussion or in a podcast episode.

  • Spotlight the best articles on key topics. (Update: This is happening!) Read the best-ever articles on a variety of important topics, all in one place.

  • Organize teacher curriculum planning workshops. Teachers love The Highlighter and want to plan great units together.

  • Build a searchable article archive. (Update: This is happening soon!) Like articles on segregation by Nikole Hannah-Jones appearing in ProPublica? Here you go.

  • Expand the newsletter’s reach. It’s great to have 650+ subscribers, but wouldn’t it be better to have 1,000? Or more?
