The 91st annual Pulitzer Prizes were announced at 3 p.m. Monday at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. The Birmingham (Ala.) News won for investigative reporting — it had been a finalist in public service but was moved to investigative. The Wall Street Journal was the only newspaper to take home two awards.

The winners in the journalist categories, revealed by Pulitzer Administrator Sig Gissler, follow. In addition, the book “The Race Beat: The Press, the Civil Rights Struggle, and the Awakening of a Nation” by longtime newspaper editors Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff won in the History category.
