Lovejoy Award and Ceremony

Elijah Parish Lovejoy, a Colby graduate, became America’s first martyr to the free press and a martyr to the abolitionist cause in 1837 when he was shot by a mob for his impassioned antislavery editorials. The Lovejoy award honors journalists who exemplify Lovejoy’s heritage of fearlessness and freedom. Past honoreees include James Risen of the New York Times, Bob Woodward of The Washington Post and Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson of NPR.
