LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Eugene Robinson will be in Louisville next month to receive the University of Louisville School of Law's Brandeis Medal for social justice advocacy.
Robinson is an author, columnist, political commentator and former assistant managing editor of The Washington Post. He received a 2009 Pulitzer Prize in commentary for his columns on the 2008 presidential campaign. His most recent book, "Disintegration: The Splintering of Black America," was published in 2010.
The program for the ceremony on April 9 will feature an on-stage discussion between Robinson and journalist Bob Edwards, who is a U of L alumnus.
Law school Dean Susan Duncan says Robinson has throughout his career sought equality, freedom and human compassion.
The ceremony costs $75 per person, and registration is required by March 25.
