It's Wednesday. Here's a look at the headlines:

My family's slave

A journalist tells a family secret, one of slavery in modern America in The Atlantic's "My Family's Slave" by Alex Tizon. Tizon died suddenly shortly before the publication of the piece.

Her name was Eudocia Tomas Pulido. We called her Lola. She was 4 foot 11, with mocha-brown skin and almond eyes that I can still see looking into mine — my first memory. She was 18 years old when my grandfather gave her to my mother as a gift, and when my family moved to the United States, we brought her with us. No other word but slave encompassed the life she lived.
