Carnegie Mellon Hosts Museum Newspaper Display of September 11 Terrorist Attacks

PITTSBURGH—Front pages of U.S. and foreign newspapers reporting the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America will be on display at Carnegie Mellon University's Roberts Engineering Hall. More than 20 newspapers from the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East were collected by the Newseum, the interactive museum of news.

During its transition period, the Newseum has permitted some of its displays to be used by nonprofit organizations dedicated to expanding the knowledge of how journalists work. The exhibit, "America Under Attack: Sept. 11, 2001," made its way to Carnegie Mellon after a June 2002 preview at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The Newseum is funded by the Freedom Forum, a nonpartisan foundation dedicated to free press and free speech for all people.

WHEN: Friday, July 12, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: Singleton Room, Roberts Hall, Carnegie Mellon University (off Frew Street and Schenley Park).
