Help The Highlighter grow!

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

Now, 340+ issues later, The Highlighter comes out week after week, offering the best longform articles and podcasts on race, education, and culture.

If you appreciate and value The Highlighter, please consider becoming a VIP member!

You’ll receive my undying gratitude, plus…

  • an invitation to join Article Club (including The 1619 Project book study)
  • exclusive VIP posts and audio letters
  • special invites to Highlighter events
  • delivery of the newsletter to your Kindle (if you like)
  • surprise perks and prizes

Your support will help The Highlighter get better. Already we've launched a podcast, facilitated 25 discussions, interviewed 25 authors, hosted 14 happy hours, and put on a rollicking game show.

And there’s much more to come! Who knows, maybe 2022 is the year of The Highlighter Hoodie!?

As a VIP, you’ll join a caring, thoughtful group of people who will map out the future direction of The Highlighter. (As in: Tell me your ideas! and we’ll make them happen.)

Thank you for your readership, and thank you for supporting The Highlighter!
