The Boston Globe was awarded the Pulitzer Prizes for Commentary and Feature Photography on Monday.

The administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, Michael Stride, announced the winners in a press conference livestreamed on YouTube and Facebook.

Farah Stockman, a former Globe opinion writer now working as a reporter for The New York Times, won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary for “columns that probed the legacy of busing in Boston and its long-term effect on education in the city.”

Jessica Rinaldi, a staff photographer at the Globe, won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for “the revealing story of a boy who strives to find his footing after abuse by those he trusted.”
