Michel Martin delivers Herblock Lecture and donates honorarium to Gulf States Newsroom

The grant will go toward funding the work of the public radio regional newsroom that includes stations from Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. Washington D.C., April 28, 2022 -- All Things Considered weekend host Michel Martin delivered the prestigious lecture at The Herblock Prize awards ceremony held at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., on April 26. This year's winner was Lalo Alcaraz, a nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist and the creator of the syndicated daily comic strip, "La Cucaracha," published nationwide since 2002. The Herb Block Foundation every year requests a notable lecturer to speak when it presents its award for excellence in editorial cartooning. Guest speakers discuss social issues of the day in the spirit of Herb Block. In lieu of the usual payment for lecturers, the Foundation continues to honor Block's legacy of the importance of not only drawing attention to current social injustices, but also giving back to the communities in need. The lecturer therefore agrees to donate a $20,000 honorarium to give to a nonprofit (501c3) organization of their choice in their name from The Herb Block Foundation.
