Newseum  A top museum attraction in Washington, D.C. dedicated to the importance of a free press and the five freedoms of the First Amendment. #newseum

“The #Newseum reminds us that great journalism has many purposes: to inform, to enlighten, to challenge and to surprise,” said Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., the #FreeExpression18 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. “The highest and noblest role of a free press is holding power to account. That’s been true throughout our nation’s history but it is especially true to remember today.” Last night’s honorees left us all inspired and ready to continue championing the #FirstAmendment.

Today, at the #FreeExpression18 Awards, the #Newseum will honor four admirable individuals and thirteen journalists who uncovered sexual misconduct in the workplace. The recipients of the third annual Free Expression Awards have taken personal or professional risks in sharing critical information with the public, have been censored or punished by authorities or other groups for their work and have pushed boundaries in artistic and media expression. Together, they represent the power of the #FirstAmendment and free expression to enact change and make a difference.

More than 1,000 mourners attended Martin Luther King Jr.’s funeral at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta #OTD in #1968. When Coretta Scott King discovered that the press pool covering her husband’s funeral included no black photographers, she sent word: If veteran @ebonymagazine photographer Moneta Sleet Jr. wasn’t allowed in the church, there would be no photographers, period. The photo Sleet took of Mrs. King consoling her daughter Bernice was awarded the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography. Said Sleet, “If I hadn’t been there working, I would have been off crying like everybody else.” Sleet was the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize for journalism. Learn more about Sleet’s photo in the “1968: Civil Rights at 50” exhibit on Level 4 or the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery on Level 1.

#OTD 50 years ago, #MLK was assassinated on the balcony of his Memphis motel. The #civilrights leader had a dream that one day we would have racial equality across this country. Today, his legacy lives on and is explored throughout various exhibits at the #Newseum.
