Over the past century, Pulitzer Prize-winning local journalism has continually exposed shortcomings of governance and institutional abuse, from Malcolm Johnson's seminal 1948 coverage of Manhattan’s waterfront rackets to 2018 staff reporting from The Advocate in Baton Rouge that prompted the repeal of a Jim Crow-era state jury law. These projects have embodied the enduring vitality of the First Amendment, revealing wrongdoing in some of America's most vulnerable communities.
This month, the Pulitzer Prizes will highlight local reporting with our new "On the Road" program. A series of panel discussions hosted by Administrator Marjorie Miller, "On the Road" will enable the public to hear firsthand about the journalistic process from today's Pulitzer winners and finalists.
