September 21, 2016 | 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.| Free
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prizes, this program, which was presented by The Sixth Floor Museum and 29 Pieces, provided a platform to launch a powerful community dialogue on the toll of violence and war. The panel included five Pulitzer Prize-winning photographers and one winner of the International Women’s Media Foundation Award — David Hume Kennerly, 1972 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography, for images of the wars in Vietnam and Cambodia, the Ali v. Frazier World Heavyweight Championship at Madison Square Garden and refugees escaping from East Pakistan into India; Nick Ut, 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography, for “The Terror of War,” depicting children in flight from a napalm bombing; Carol Guzy, one of four people to have won the Pulitzer Prize four times; David Leeson, 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News, for his coverage of the Iraq War; Bob Jackson, 1964, Pulitzer Prize for Photography, for his photograph of the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby; and Heidi Levine, who won the International Women’s Media Foundation inaugural Anja Niedringhaus (Pulitzer Prize winner killed in action) courage in photojournalism award for her work in Gaza.
