“Media Literacy 101,” a series of three public programs conducted in partnership with the Atlanta Press Club and the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia, will offer the citizens of Atlanta the opportunity to examine and better understand today’s complex media landscape through bringing together local reporters with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists.

A media literacy guide will be created for distribution at the programs and for download from the websites of Georgia Humanities and the Atlanta Press Club. New content will be incorporated to the digital exhibition “Look Forward,” which highlights the significant public impact of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists whose “race beat” coverage impacted the modern civil rights movement and was created in celebration of the centennial of the Pulitzer Prizes.
