Bedtime Stories About Race & Social Justice 
"So what do we tell our children? How do we talk about race and social justice with kids? As a white parent, I know I’ve been afraid that I’ll fumble the task." (Reading My Tea Leaves)

We're Reading With Her
"I don’t know whether Hillary Clinton’s previous books were good or bad. I didn’t read them, because I assumed they were normal politician-books. But What Happened is not a standard work of this genre. It’s interesting; it’s worth reading; and it sets out questions that the press, in particular, has not done enough to face." (The Atlantic)

From sex object to gritty woman: “Stock photos — generic images that appear in places like ads, billboards, magazines and blogs — reflect the culture at a moment in time.” (The New York Times)

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on how to write and how to read: “When it’s difficult, what keeps me going is the possibility of joy.” (Literary Hub)

Remembering Edith Windsor: “She lawyered up, she fought, she won, and she paved the way for legal gay marriage in every state.” (Vogue)

Do artists and designer have an obligation to be political?: “Everything that we, as culture producers, create is cultural data that others consume. Regardless of a maker’s intentions, art is political once it is available to any audience.” (Design Sponge)
