8 Journalists on Reporting While Black, With the Weight of History on Their Shoulders

One of the things that’s so exhausting for Black journalists is this constant feeling of “Yes, and I told you so.” It is so frustrating when someone you had a conversation with four years ago—or six months ago or last week or just 24 hours ago—comes to you later and says, “I had no idea. I had no idea things were this bad.” Because all that tells me is it didn’t matter when I said it. It only mattered when you finally found a reference point that you were willing to accept as valid. - Stacy-Marie Ishmael, Editorial Director of the Texas Tribune

“Black women have been telling the truth about America for a long time.”

Our founder, Condé Montrose Nast, was born on March 26, 1873. Mr. Nast acquired Vogue in 1909, the June 24th issue was the first to list him as publisher. He purchased Vanity Fair in 1913 and relaunched it in January 1914. We remember Condé Nast and celebrate his legacy.

Jean Toomer’s Odd, Keening “A Drama of the Southwest”

"One of the little tortures of the moment is the sudden disappearance of live theatre...I’ve tried to console myself by turning to plays that have seldom—sometimes never—been seen, but which I love nonetheless."

The strange but promising unproduced play, from 1935, chronicles the writer’s attempt to birth what he imagined as “a new race in America” at the Taos art colony, in New Mexico.

Eric Drooker’s “Grand Central Terminal”

"During the New Deal, the U.S. government actually hired artists to create grand works in public places. And the experiment was hugely successful; it gave relief to thousands of Americans—and meaning to millions—and helped pull the country out of the Great Depression. In recent decades, concepts such as “public space” and “public health” are often branded as socialist, but many of my images are influenced by the art of that era." -Eric Drooker

This week’s cover addresses emptiness in public spaces as a result of the coronavirus, as exemplified by Grand Central Terminal, where hundreds of thousands would normally pass through every day.

Social Distance Is a Social Justice Issue

Photos still percolated on social media of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at bars, of Friday night dinners in packed restaurants, of group selfies in public places. All of this comes as even more data reveals that COVID-19 is insidiously, highly contagious even in people who are showing little to no symptoms.

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the injustices of American society. Now our only way out is to come together—by staying apart.

Tennis Goes On at the Australian Open, Despite the Fires—This Time

Several players lashed out at tournament officials for what they saw as a lack of transparency and poor communication—and even a risk of serious danger—in the decision to allow play to continue. It was not lost on some that the top players practiced under a closed roof, inside air-filtered arenas, while lower-ranked qualifiers were left gasping outside.

The haze of wildfires hanging over the Open this year is a reminder that climate change may force a rethinking of the entire tennis calendar—especially the global travel demanded of players.

“The love of a ghost for a ghost”: T.S. Eliot on his letters to Emily Hale

On November 25, 1960, four years after Emily Hale told him she was giving his letters to her to Princeton, T.S. Eliot wrote a letter to his Executors with an accompanying document. Revised on September 30, 1963, the document was sealed and entrusted to his wife Valerie, who was instructed to give it to the librarian in charge of the Eliot Collection at Harvard, to be made public on the day his letters to Emily Hale were made public at Princeton University Library.

For 51 years, the letter has sat quietly on a shelf in the Houghton Library vault, but today the Library fulfills its promise to the poet.

By Leslie A. Morris, Gore Vidal Curator of Modern Books and Manuscripts, Houghton Library On November 25, 1960, four years after Emily Hale told him she was giving his letters to her to Princeton, …
