Christopher Lydon reports that the Niemann Foundation has awarded Zwelakhe Sisulu (South African journalist) the Louis Lyons Award.

Lydon's report includes footage of Michael Pride (Concord Monitor of Concord, NH) and Al Max (Chairman, Lyons Committee) at a press conference. Pride talks about Sisulu's courage. Max says that Sisulu is the third South African journalist to win the award. Lydon notes that Zwelakhe Sisulu is the son of Walter Sisulu (founder of the African National Congress).
