William Raspberry was a Pulitzer-Prize winning Washington Post journalist for over 40 years. Among the first black journalists to receive a nationally syndicated column, Raspberry was called a man who, “had a way of telling you to go to hell and making you look forward to the trip.” He told the many stories of civil rights from a middle-journalist perspective and not just as an angry black man, as many would assume he represented.
In 1994, Raspberry became the second black journalist to win the Pulitzer Prize for journalism.
