Meet Pulitzer Prize-Winning Columnist Nicholas Kristof

Tulsa, Oklahoma – On this edition of our program, we speak by phone with Nicholas Kristof, the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist and well-respected human rights advocate. Tomorrow night (Thursday the 7th) at 7:30pm in the Allen Chapman Activity Center on the TU campus, Kristof will deliver the second 2010-2011 Presidential Lecture (in a three-lecture annual series sponsored by the Darcy O'Brien Endowed Chair). Often called a "reporter's reporter" --- and often celebrated for his column's repeated (and internationally minded) efforts to give a voice to the voiceless --- Kristof was the subject of the acclaimed documentary film from last year called "Reporter." Moreover, Kristof and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, are the co-authors of the recent book --- and the subsequent socio-cultural movement --- known as "Half the Sky." (Details are at halftheskymovement.org.) Also, you can learn more about Kristof's upcoming appearance at TU, which is free to the public, here: http://www.utulsa.edu/about-TU/news-events-publications/UniversityEvents/2010/October/Presidential-Lecture-Series-Kristof.aspx.
