Two years ago I left what I thought would be a dream job at well-respected research university.
It quickly became apparent that the job wasn’t the right fit for me.
I wanted to write. I needed to write.
So I stepped into an unknown and uncertain future with the faith that I could somehow do what I love to do and still make a living.
Just a couple of months later, I launched the paid subscriber feature on this Substack.
I was so nervous. I didn’t think people would actually pay me to write articles here. I didn’t know if I could deliver a value that was worth financially supporting.
Well, you floored me. From the initial surge of paid subscribers to the steady month-by-month growth—you have committed yourself to sustaining the work of racial justice by funding “Footnotes.”
In fact, you have helped propel Footnotes into the top five spot on the leaderboard in the History category of Substack!
I can never thank you enough for literally buying me the time to research, draft, revise, and publish these articles. But as a sign of my gratitude you get an opportunity no one else does.
Our latest “Justice Takes Sides” apparel is now available, and for the next three days my paid subscribers have exclusive first-look access.
