Here is your week in review, in haiku:

 

1.

It kept on rainin’.

Mean old levee: Water rose.

But we rose higher

 

2.

And a world away,

monsoons swept a thousand souls

to watery graves

 

3.

Well, I guess we could

kickstart some Tubman stickers

to slap on Jackson

 

4.

When a Dream’s deferred,

once American, now not.

Return to sender

 

5.

Orange Rain, Orange

Rain? What matter the color?

We just miss our Prince

 

Have a safe and colorful weekend. RaceAhead returns Tuesday, September 5th. Don’t forget to hit up Fortune.com for your daily dose of inclusion inspiration.
