A Trio of Boosts: Music of Freedom Movements, a Supreme Court Win, and Creatively Coping With Isolation

Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.

Energy to enter the week: the signature sounds of music grounded in freedom movements, perfectly timed for the monumental victory announced today by the Supreme Court in the fight for human rights. And the community-building of Suleika Jaouad, a leukemia survivor and Emmy-winning writer who created “The Isolation Journals,” a global project of portraiture and resilience in the face of distance during the pandemic. Catch Jaouad’s moving, candid conversation with the interviewer Nelufar Hedayat in a recent episode of #DearWorld Live, about coping constructively with mental and physical health challenges in isolation.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2021 demands.
