As part of the Pulitzer Prize Centennial Campfires Initiative, the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and Philadelphia Media Network have joined forces to encourage civic dialogue on the importance of journalism and humanities in public life. Highlights will include
- A website that will serve as a focal point for Pulitzer Prize–winning materials with ties to Pennsylvania;
- A social-media campaign to engage a broad audience and encourage virtual dialogue around the Pulitzer materials; and
- A panel discussion at the National Constitution Center led by Bill Marimow, Pulitzer Prize–winning editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer, which will explore the relationship between groundbreaking news, the protections offered to the press under the First Amendment, and the ethical repercussions faced by journalists and editors.
Stay tuned for a project timeline and updates!
