Profiles of notable journalists and their stories of key moments in U.S. history in the last 50 years can be found on the Investigating Power site. See Workshop Executive Editor Charles Lewis’ latest video interviews as well as historic footage and timelines. You can also read more about the project and why we documented these groundbreaking examples of original, investigative journalism that helped shape or change public perceptions on key issues of our time, from civil rights to Iraq, here.

This sister website was developed by Charles Lewis, IRW’s Executive Editor, and a team of reporters, editors, videographers and researchers at IRW, with plans to continually update the site. New curriculum guides were added last year.
