Jun 18, 2021 • View in browser
Good morning. 🌤️
Today, a history of racial protests in Brooklyn, technology has revealed a new portrait by Amedeo Modigliani, and Elara Shurety asks “what happened to electronic civil disobedience?”
Also, tomorrow is a national holiday in the US, Juneteenth, and we want to wish everyone a restful day. Last year we did a special Sunday Edition on the topic, and we encourage you all to check it out in order to get a better acquainted with the history and importance of a holiday that marks the emancipation of African Americans.
