Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist Wesley Lowery to Speak at USF
The Feb. 15 event is free and open to the public
Having worked as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal and Boston Globe, Lowery has dedicated his life to reporting news stories that strike at the heart of what he values as essential to keep in the political conversation. This work has earned him the title of Emerging Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists. Lowery’s coverage of police shootings while at the Washington Post and the Boston Marathon bombings while at the Boston Globe helped him earn two Pulitzer Prizes.
Presented by USF Phi Beta Kappa alumni faculty and sponsored by the USF College of Arts and Sciences and USF Office of the Provost, the Frontier Forum Lecture Series has hosted several notable speakers since 2010, including Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michio Kaku, George Takei, Jane Goodall and Scott Freiman.
