Hank Klibanoff

project managing editor
Atlanta, GA

Born in Alabama, Hank Klibanoff grew up witnessing the civil rights movement, massive resistance and the evolution of race relations in the South. Those experiences, along with his 35 years as a newspaper reporter and editor in Mississippi, at The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, were key influences as he co-wrote The Race Beat: The Press, the Civil Rights Struggle, and the Awakening of a Nation. The book won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for history.
