Civil Rights Movement, 1967
Newsweek distinguished itself with spirited coverage of the civil rights movement. In this 1967 cover story, then-editor Osborn Elliott wrote, "To deal with the racial crisis effectively, there must be a mobilization of the nation's moral, spiritual and physical resources, and a commitment on the part of all segments of U.S. society." The issue garnered several accolades, including the Columbia University School of Journalism's Magazine of the Year award.
