Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting from African countries by
leading American journalists is a latecomer within the award
category for international coverage.

It took almost close to two decades after the establishment
of the awards that reporting about the Italian-Ethiopian
crisis was declared prize-worthy by the Pulitzer Prize
jurors. During World War II prizes were given for the
coverage of the North African battlefields. Since the 1960s
inner-African conflicts like unrests in the Congo impressed
the jurors as well as the Apartheid system in South Africa.
