2019 Lovejoy Award

October 4, 4:00 PM

Free

The 67th Lovejoy Award will honor the journalists who sacrificed their lives in 2018. The event will feature a discussion with Martin Smith, a veteran filmmaker and journalist who recently produced a Frontline documentary on the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, and Hala Al-Dosari, the Washington Post’s inaugural Jamal Khashoggi Fellow and a scholar in residence at New York University School of Law’s Center for Human Rights and Global Justice. Moderating the conversation will be Quil Lawrence, veterans correspondent for NPR News and formerly NPR’s bureau chief in Baghdad and Kabul. A reception will follow in Cotter Union.

Elijah Parish Lovejoy, Colby Class of 1826 and a native of Albion, Maine, was murdered in Illinois in 1837 as he defended his newspaper from the attack of a mob enraged by his publishing of anti-slavery editorials. Colby has honored other courageous journalists with the annual Lovejoy Award since 1952.
