Pulitzer Prizes and the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media

The school upgraded the Carroll Hall lobby in time for the fall 2015 semester with a museum-quality installation of the Pulitzer Prize that 1953 alumnus Horace Carter donated to the school in 1990 hoping to inspire future generations of students. 
The new location provides greater prominence and exposure to students for Carter’s story. His courageous community journalism led to The Tabor City Tribune becoming, in 1953, the first weekly newspaper to win the Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Public Service, the most coveted Pulitzer of all. 
Carter, founder, owner and operator of the newspaper, earned the prize for his crusade against the Ku Klux Klan — resulting in 62 Klan convictions.
