Thursday, Feb 16, 2023

The Heising-Simons Foundation announced this week that Tisch Drama alumnus Carvell Wallace, Class of '07, was a recipient of the 2023 American Mosaic Journalism Prize.

The prize is awarded for excellence in reporting about underrepresented and/or misrepresented groups in the United States. It recognizes journalism’s ability to foster understanding and aims to support freelance journalists. Wallace shared the 2023 award with a fellow freelance reporter, Cerise Castle.

As a magazine contributor, Wallace has written profiles in GQEsquireGlamourThe New Yorker and The New York Times.  “I’ve long thought that the only thing that really matters is how we treat each other,” said Wallace. “I view everything through this lens, whether it’s sports, culture, politics, art or film. It’s why I focus my writing on our shared humanity, and the struggles we go through to find love and liberation.”
