The 2021 Pulitzer Prizes are being announced.
Darnella Frazier, the citizen who video’d George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis, is getting a special citation.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune won Breaking News for their coverage of the Floyd murder.
The Literature and Arts Awards were mostly obscure, although congrats to David Zucchino on winning the award for Non Fiction. I had the pleasure of editing pieces by him about the fall of apartheid in 1989 for Fame magazine. He was working for the Philadelphia Inquirer then and was a prize winner at that time, too.
keep refreshing for full list…
