Colson Whitehead fikk sin andre Pulitzerpris i New York i natt (5. mai  2020) for boken Nickel-guttene.

A spare and devastating exploration of abuse at a reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida that is ultimately a powerful tale of human perseverance, dignity and redemption.

Whitehead vant også prisen for Den underjordiske jernbanen i 2017. Kun tre andre forfattere har fått prisen to ganger: William Faulkner, John Updikte og Boots Tarkington.
