The Inaugural Truthteller Award

The Los Angeles Press Club is proud to announce that Shawn “JAY Z” Carter and Harvey Weinstein are the co-winners of its inaugural Truthteller Award for Contributions to the Public Discourse and Cultural Enlightenment of our Society.

Mr. Carter and Mr. Weinstein, in addition to their respective bodies of work, receive the award for their Spike-TV documentary-series “Time: The Kalief Browder Story,” which aired earlier this year to critical praise. The show brought to light the story of Browder, who was falsely imprisoned for three years in Rikers Prison, mostly in solitary confinement, which led to his suicide.
