Thurgood Marshall Journalism Awards

"The question with which we must deal is not whether a substantial proportion of American citizens would today, if polled, opine that capital punishment is barbarously cruel, but whether they would find it to be so in light of all information presently available."
- Justice Thurgood Marshall

Furman v. Georgia
In 1996, the Death Penalty Information Center established the Thurgood Marshall Journalism Awards to recognize those writers and producers who have made an exceptional contribution to the understanding of the problems associated with capital punishment. The award is named in honor of former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, a champion of justice, who believed that a well-informed public would ultimately reject the use of the death penalty.

The Thurgood Marshall Journalism Awards have been discontinued as of January 2009.  Thank you to all who have expressed interest in this program.
