Wiley Price III - 2018
Wiley Price III was often the only press photographer to show up at crime scenes or news events, and the awards he received for that work attest to its value and quality. Long associated with the St. Louis American, Price also shot for the Suburban Journals, Associated Press and numerous publications as a free-lancer. His community involvement helped earn him recognition as one of the NAACP’s “100 Most Inspiring St. Louisans” in 2009, and he could often be found in local grade and high schools serving as a guest lecturer. The Greater St. Louis Association of Black Journalists honored him in 2018 as a living legend for his years of service to the local African-American Community.
