Abstract:

Author and professor Roger Wilkins was born on March 25, 1932 in Kansas City, Missouri. Wilkins attended the University of Michigan, receiving his B.A. degree in 1953, his J.D. degree in 1956, interning with Thurgood Marshall at the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund. Wilkins worked for USAID, then as assistant attorney general under President Lyndon B. Johnson. In 1972, Wilkins began writing for the editorial page of The Washington Post just as the Watergate scandal was breaking. His critically informed editorials about the issues leading up to President Richard Nixon's resignation won him a shared Pulitzer Prize. He moved to The New York Times, serving as the first African American on its editorial board as well as a columnist. Wilkins became a history professor at George Mason University and the publisher of the NAACP's journal, Crisis. He authored several books, including Jefferson's Pillow. He passed away on March 26, 2017.
