I cannot wait for Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah's book to be in the world. News today: Robin Desser bought at Random House. The book will “be a two-volume, broad-sweeping work about the black experience in America, from its very beginnings to the current day.”
Wooooo, fantastic news!
If you start any so-called apology proclaiming "I am not a racist," you are almost certainly a racist. Better to say, "I am a product of a racist country. I have racist practices and I will work to rectify those through aggressive anti-racism work."
Period. That's your new job.
It’s my birthday & I’m hoping some of you might order my #Gellhorn book either as a treat for yourself or a gift for a friend from a favourite bookshop.
If you do, please DM a receipt & your snail mail address & I’ll write you a letter about her. #May26
Remember writing letters? #Gellhorn's were important and illuminating.

In case you're wondering how it's going, running low on meds and yes the new prescription has shipped but I'm weeping copiously and this is what it's like to be a depressive who has to take medication for life. #depression #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth
#5Thanks: 1. Laughing with family. 2. Celebrating colleagues! Hooray @BroadsidePR, 5 years of great work! 3. Progress on a project despite my own lapses. 4. Reading a cozy at bedtime. 5. A dear one recovering safely at home after surgery.
We’re about to reach the grim milestone of 100,000 deaths in this pandemic. This needs recognition & remembrance, especially since the pandemic deprives so many the ability to mourn as a community. On May 31 noon ET, CNN will host WE REMEMBER, a memorial service for those lost.
Sad and important.
