USA TODAY is launching This Is America, its first newsletter centered on race, identity and the ways they shape every part of our lives.
With a vibrant, unflinching look into current events, popular culture and the key figures who define life in America today, This is America's goal is to spark crucial conversations and build bridges between Black, Indigenous people, people of color and their allies. While this newsletter will be written from a Generation Z and Millennial perspective, it is open to everyone for discussion and discourse.
Each weekly edition will feature a rundown of the week's crucial events, Q&As, original reporting and some hot takes for good measure.
The newsletter will be hosted by a rotating slate of USA TODAY reporters and social media editors of color: Fatima Farha, N'Dea Yancey-Bragg, Jessica Flores, Rasha Ali, Joshua Bote and Mabinty Quarshie. Our editors are Lindsay Deutsch, Josh Rivera and Cristina Silva. All graphics were designed by Lokela Blanc.
This is America publishes once a week, every Thursday. Subscribe to the newsletter now.
