In 2003, Colbert King received the Pulitzer Prize, as the committee put it, "for his against the grain columns that speak to people in power with ferocity and wisdom". King is a critic of the criminal justice system, religious fundamentalism and the exploitation of the poor. King lives in North West Washington and is married to Gwendolyn Stewart King. His son, Rob King, deputy managing editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer, calls him "The King of Dads and the Dad of Kings".

Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
