Civil Rights Film Leads 2010 Wilbur Awards List

 

 

Religion Communicators Council honors secular print, online, broadcast work

NEW YORK,  -- Blood Done Sign My NameJeb Stuart's film about a little-known chapter in the American civil rights struggle, leads the list of 2010 Wilbur Awards winners.

The Religion Communicators Council is presenting 14 Wilbur Awards to secular media organizations April 9 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. In addition, Bob Abernethy, longtime host of PBS' Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, is to receive a special Wilbur Award for contributions to public discussion of faith topics.

Stuart, best known for his work on Die Hard and The Fugitive, adapted Tim Tyson's best-selling book into a gripping story—told through the eyes of Oxford, N.C., residents, both black and white. Judges noted that the film's story of how residents risked their lives for civil rights resonated with the Wilbur Award's purpose: to recognize "excellence in the presentation of religious issues, themes and values" in secular print and online journalism, book publishing, broadcasting, and motion pictures.

The council has presented Wilbur Awards annually since 1949. The award is named for the late Marvin C. Wilbur, a pioneer in religious public relations and longtime council leader.
