Professor Roberto Suro will moderate Pulitzer Prizes panel, War, Migration and the Quest for Peace

This year marks the 100th awarding of the Pulitzer Prizes. To celebrate, the Los Angeles Times and USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism are hosting two days of performances and conversations reflecting on subjects as timely today as they were a century ago.
