Pulitzer winners mostly white males

Whether you go back 100 years or the past decade, about 84% of the Pulitzer Prize winners are white and mostly male.

African-Americans have about the same percentages in this decade as they had in the 1970s and 1980s.

Women have gone from to 16% to about one-third. The total has gone from 5 in the 1970s to 52 in the past decade, mostly in feature writing and investigative reporting.

Former PD columnist Connie Schultz won a 2005 Pulitzer for commentary.
