Why you should care
From a new online dream job to a team saving abandoned dogs, here’s the best of OZY this week.
This week in our Aging With Race series, we learned about the possible key to saving historically Black churches and the unequal financial burden shouldered by Black caregivers.
We met a woman taking a hands-on approach to Nigeria’s period poverty and a Nazi refugee architect who pioneered efficient homes. And we found out how rainbow benches are dividing Poland and how plant power is building up muscles like Ah-nold’s.
