The News and You

Presented by Utah Humanities at Ruth Vine Tyler Library

Jennifer Napier-Pearce from the Pulitzer Prize Winning Salt Lake Tribune will discuss the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and how it guarantees the right of a free press, and yet journalists today are repeatedly derided as “the enemy of the people” and their work dismissed as “fake”.

This program is part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” Initiative administered by the Federation of State Humanities Councils in partnership with the Pulitzer Prizes Board for a collaboration between UPR, Utah Humanities, The Salt Lake Tribune, and The Salt Lake City Library. The initiative seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry. The “Democracy and the Informed Citizen” Initiative is supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
