The Highlighter Newsletter

“The Highlighter is amazing in every way. It’s a weekly dose of intellectual sugar.”
— Marni Spitz, loyal reader

You love to read great articles but don’t have the time to pore over hundreds of publications or sift through the steady barrage of clickbait to find the gems.

Let me do that work for you!

Every Thursday at 9:10 am, I’ll send you the best articles on race, education, and culture. They’ll push your thinking and expand your empathy.

Try out the last three issues, then subscribe!

“Thank you for your work, warmth, and unwavering will to include others in the written word.”
— Beth Silbergeld

“If it’s Thursday morning, it’s Highlighter time! I look forward to The Highlighter’s thoughtfully curated articles that encourage me to think about an issue from another perspective, or learn about an issue I was woefully uninformed about. The newsletter is fun as well, usually with a cute pet photo or two.”
— Kati Parker

“Always an eclectic and inspiring collection!”
