Lehigh University invited the community to come out to attend a feature presentation of the film Spotlight, nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture. The film tells the story of how The Boston Globe exposed a decades-long cover-up of clergy sex abuse in the Catholic church. The Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation was launched by Lehigh alum Martin Baron '76 '76G '14H, the paper's editor portrayed in the film. The film screening was held in Baker Hall, Zoellner Arts Center, on Thursday, February 18, 2016, and the hall was filled to capacity. Following the film, the audience was treated to a conversation with Baron and Jack Lule, professor and chair of the Department of Journalism and Communication, where Baron shared some of his insights and fielded questions from the audience. Earlier in the day, Baron met with Lule and students to share his time and insights as well. Photos by John Kish IV and Christa Neu.
