Charlie Hebdo at the Newseum

To mark the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks at the Paris offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people were killed, the Newseum hosted two programs exploring the aftermath of the attacks in France and around the world.


On Jan. 6, the Newseum Institute, Reporters Without Borders and the Washington Foreign Law Society convened a discussion on the worldwide impact on a free press and free expression after the Charlie Hebdo attacks. Moderator Delphine Halgand of Reporters Without Borders led a conversation with experts from the U.S. and an online guest live from France.


On Jan. 8, the first Inside Media program of the year featured Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists Ann Telnaes of The Washington Post and Signe Wilkinson of the Philadelphia Daily News talking about the role of political cartoonists in a free press, and how the deadly Charlie Hebdo attack, which killed five cartoonists at the magazine, has impacted their work.
