Join us on Wednesday, November 16, 2016, when New York-based photographer Andre Lambertson visits Spelman College in Atlanta. His work explores issues from Baltimore and New Orleans to the Caribbean and West Africa.

His reporting projects with the Pulitzer Center look at life for those affected by HIV/AIDS since the Haiti earthquake, the response from Jamaican religious communities to LGBTQ rights and those living with HIV/AIDS, and the struggles of Liberian youth after the 14-year civil war.

Lambertson is a New York-based photojournalist, teacher, and filmmaker committed to documenting stories of hope, healing, and transformation. He creates award-winning photo essays on social issues for magazines, books, foundations, advocacy organizations and museums including Time, US News & World Report, Life, National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, The Ford Foundation, and The Smithsonian Museum.

The visit launches the Spelman College-Pulitzer Center Campus Consortium Partnership. Rebecca Kaplan, ACLS/Mellon Pulitzer Center fellow, joins Lambertson to speak about the Pulitzer Center and international reporting opportunities for students.
