Morris! He is not a cat, but he is an extraordinary journalist and collaborator. Here is his official bio, which barely does him justice: David joined Fortune as a staff writer in 2019, and has contributed to the Atlantic, Slate, and other outlets. Pre-journalism, he was an academic sociologist focused on the history and legacy of racist ideology, particularly in Japan. He has taught on related subjects at the University of Iowa, the University of South Florida, and Tokyo University of the Arts.

Researchers Mark Mortensen and Heidi K. Gardner spent the last eight months researching the WFH experience at dozens of companies in a variety of sectors. It all seemed good, at first. But now, there is new “recognition that trust in their organizations — in individuals, relationships, and the organization — is fundamentally at risk.” A thought-provoking read — particularly the science around trust — but also if you read between the lines for specific experiences of underrepresented talent in the workplace.u003cbr />u003ca href="https://hbr.org/2021/02/wfh-is-corroding-our-trust-in-each-other">HBRu003c/a>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>A strange and beautiful New Year u003c/strong>If you only have time for one extra-curricular read, make time for this poignant essay from Vanessa Hua, a writer and novelist focusing on immigration and identity. It’s a brief snapshot into how she’s experiencing a COVID-defined Lunar New Year, filled with tender memories, now re-shaped by social distance. “I miss the bustle of preparations as I shop for crisp red envelopes, into which I stuff lucky money,” she says. But some preparations for a fresh start feel on point. “I empty the trash and sweep the floor, getting rid of the bad luck, which 2020 provided in terrible abundance.” She tells the story of the Jade Emperor and the great race to heaven that explains what each animal sign in the Asian zodiac mean. “The sneaky rat is gone and the hardworking and honest ox now reigns,” she says. “Though I’m usually not so superstitious, I’ve been thinking about how such beliefs originate out of a desire to protect ourselves from danger.” Let’s hope so.u003cbr />u003ca href="https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/12/opinion/lunar-new-year-2021.html">New York Timesu003c/a>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong> u003c/strong>u003c/p>nu003cp> u003c/p>nu003ch3>On backgroundu003c/h3>nu003cp>u003cstrong>When mind games mean chess u003c/strong>Harlin Pierce, 24, is a singer, songwriter, visual artist and writer currently incarcerated in the Jim Ferguson Unit, in Texas. In this piece for The Marshall Project’s “Life Inside” series, in partnership with The Daily Beast, Pierce explains what happened when activities — including board games — were banned to promote social distancing. “Social distancing policies limit our access to recreation yards, the dayroom, classes and phones. Some days we spend roughly 23 hours in our 6-by-10 cells,” he says. Chess had experienced a surge of popularity thanks to the Netflix hit “The Queen’s Gambit,” so losing the chance to play it was a blow. Then Pierce and his chess partner Wally took the notion of “virtual” to a whole new level. It saved them both. “At the heart of our mental chess game lies a profound lesson: The difference between being content or distraught is a matter of perspective.”u003cbr />u003ca href="https://www.themarshallproject.org/2021/02/11/when-the-prison-banned-board-games-we-played-chess-in-our-minds">The Marshall Projectu003c/a>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cstrong>The lost culinary history of African Americans u003c/strong>I thought I knew a lot about a lot of things after four years on the race beat, but I absolutely had never heard of Duchess ‘Charity’ Quamino, the “u003ca href="https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/food-dining/2016/02/22/how-rhode-island-slaves-came-world-class-chefs/bCPaKxLqlWiMg3y6zgR9SP/story.html">Pastry Queen of Rhode Islandu003c/a>.” And I lived in Rhode Island for years!

But there was another young Black man in the picture. His name is Charles Bess, and he was the busboy. In this wonderful dispatch from u003cem>The Bitter Southerneru003c/em>, he talks about what it was like to work in the Jim Crow South. “Woolworth was kind of a hard place to work because sometimes the manager would get on you a lot, but she didn’t bother me too much because I did my job,” he says. But because he did his job so well, he was allowed out of the kitchen to be seen by white customers. And that’s the only reason he became a witness to history. Eventually, when the lunch counter was integrated, that same manager made sure that Black employees were the first people they served. “I love meatloaf,” Bess says. “I also had some green beans, maybe a potato salad with it.”u003cbr />u003ca href="https://bittersoutherner.com/southern-perspective/2020/charles-bess-greensboro-woolworth-sit-ins-civil-rights">The Bitter Southerneru003c/a>u003c/p>nu003cp>u003cem>u003cspan style="font-size: 1.125rem;letter-spacing: 0.035rem">This edition of raceAheadu003c/span> is edited by David Z.
