Gene Roberts, pre-Pulitzer*

On Monday, Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff won a Pulitzer Prize for History for The Race Beat: The Press, the Civil Rights Struggle, and the Awakening of a Nation (Knopf).

Earlier this year, I spoke with Roberts--the legendary former editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer--about that book and the lessons today's journalists can draw from their civil-rights-era predecessors. If you didn't check out the Q-and-A at the time, please take a look.

*Note: by "pre-Pulitzer," I mean before this year's Pulitzer. As a reader pointed out--and as I noted in my intro to said interview--the Inquirer won 17 Pulitzers in Roberts' 18 years as editor.
