The Atlantic Wins Two From Society of Magazine Editors

The Atlantic earned two awards from the American Society of Magazine Editors on Thursday: Best Web site and Best Essay and Criticism for Ta-Nehisi Coates‘s “Fear of a Black President” piece in the September issue.

“I’m so happy for Ta-Nehisi and the entire team at The Atlantic,” M. Scott Havens, president of The Atlantic, said in a release. “It’s wonderful to be recognized by our peers for excellence in one of our oldest journalistic forms, the essay, and one of our newest—the work we do every day on TheAtlantic.com.”

Coates’s piece, an analysis on the conflict he says Barack Obama faces as the first minority president, was up against other entries from Foreign Policy, New York, The New Yorker and Orion.
