Reception and Lecture by Eugene Robinson
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7 | 5 – 7PM
In his nearly four decades at The Washington Post, Robinson has been city hall reporter, city editor, foreign correspondent in Buenos Aires and London, foreign editor and assistant managing editor in charge of the paper’s award-winning Style section. He has written books about race in Brazil and music in Cuba, covered a heavyweight championship fight, witnessed riots in Philadelphia and a murder trial in the deepest Amazon, sat with presidents and dictators and the Queen of England, thrust and parried with hair-proud politicians from sea to shining sea, handicapped three editions of American Idol, acquired fluent Spanish and passable Portuguese and even, thanks to his two now-grown sons, come to an uneasy truce with hip-hop culture.
He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for his commentary on the 2008 presidential race that resulted in the election of America’s first African American president.
