The Truth to Power: Democratizing Information program has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled, due to scheduling conflicts and other logistical issues. We appreciate the interest of those who planned to attend, and hope that this decision does not create any inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding and support of Pulitzer NC and the North Carolina Humanities Council.

How do we deal with the requirements of the First Amendment? Whose truth do we represent? Charles Thomas, Charlotte Program Director of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and Hodding Carter III, distinguished journalist, statesman, educator and former president and CEO of the Knight Foundation, will explore the limits that institutional frameworks place on journalism and how Pulitzer Prize-winning independent editors have stepped outside those systems to confront community issues, make a call for action and change the way the nation thinks.
