On America, Jen Shah, and the future of work
America Redefined (ELLE)
Rita Omokha traveled across the United States to gain a better understanding of what’s happening and how people are feeling, and it’s some of the most important writing I’ve read in a really long time.
Reading about Rita’s conversations with other Americans from the lens of a Black woman offers a context that’s often missing from reporting like this, and it strikes me how much we’ve lost in not amplifying non-White perspectives in reporting like this.
Take some time to read through her essays. You won’t regret it.
