Cronkite Night at the Movies: “Below the Fold”

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 7:00pm

“Below the Fold: The Pulitzer That Defined Latino Journalism” is a documentary film chronicling the efforts of a team of Mexican-American journalists at the Los Angeles Times who conceived, reported, wrote and edited a series about the Latino communities of Southern California in response to the negative portrayal of Latinos in the media. The series won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, the first time the award was given to Latino journalists.

The screening is co-sponsored by Barrett, The Honors College, the Cronkite School and the Arizona Latino Media Association. It will be followed by a panel discussion featuring the filmmaker, Roberto Gudiño; Frank Sotomayor, one of the editors of the series; and Louis Sahagun and Nancy Rivera Brooks, who reported on the series and still work at the Los Angeles Times.
