Pulitzer Prizes were awarded on Monday to news organizations that delved into corporate corruption, sexual violence, foreign election interference and the legacy of racism in the United States, recognizing journalists’ examinations of inequality and other societal ills.
The New York Times won three prizes on Monday, in the categories of commentary, investigative journalism and international reporting.
The commentary award went to Nikole Hannah-Jones, a correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, for her essay that served as the leading piece in The 1619 Project, a series centered on reframing United States history by focusing on the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans. The project, led by Ms. Hannah-Jones, included a broadsheet section, a podcast and a curriculum.
