An Award Fit for Prince

Richard Prince has won the Ida B. Wells Award.

The National Association of Black Journalists announced today that Prince, a columnist for the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, will receive the honor  given to an individual who has made “outstanding efforts to make newsrooms and news coverage more accurately reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.”

Prince will be honored on January 17, 2013, at NABJ’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Newseum in Washington, D. C. The Ida B. Wells Award is named in honor of the distinguished journalist, fearless reporter and wife of one of America’s earliest black publishers.

For a decade now, he has authored the popular “Journal-isms” column, which covers issues of diversity within the news industry.  Previous recipients include: Steve Capus of NBC News; Reggie Stuart of Knight Ridder; Paula Madison of NBC Universal; and Walterene Swanston of NPR.

“He is the epitome of someone who speaks truth to power,” said NABJ Prez Gregory Lee Jr.
