Tuesday-Sunday (for adults): Film Screening: Joseph Pulitzer – Voice of the People – Virtual
Q&A with Director, Writer and Producer, Oren Rudavsky – Sunday at 2pm – Virtual
Explore the life and legacy of Joseph Pulitzer, the father of modern journalism, in Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People! A Jewish immigrant from Hungary, Joseph Pulitzer began as a gifted journalist before becoming a successful publisher and businessman. He was famous in his own time for his outspoken and cantankerous editorial voice and his newspapers’ striking illustrations, visual style, national circulation and financial success. Against the context of America’s explosive growth as a world force during the Gilded Age, Pulitzer emerged as the country’s first media titan, reshaping the newspaper to bear witness to and even propel that transformation. Joseph Pulitzer championed what he regarded as the sacred role of the free press in democracy.
Virtual: To receive the film link for viewing and the link for the Q&A, please contact Justin at 713-782-4162 or Justin@hcrj.org.
