Update 6/8/18: Our hearts and condolences are with #AnthonyBourdain’s family, friends, and colleagues. He will be remembered for opening our palettes, minds, and hearts through food, dialogue, and compassion in our shared humanity. One such example was his Parts Unknown episode addressing the Israeli-Palestinian divide for which we recognized Anthony in 2014 as a “voice of courage and conscience.” He humbly considered his work to be of “very little courage” and an “ordinary amount of conscience.” Yet, his life and work reflect the exact opposite. Tony, you will be missed. ---------- Like us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter & Instagram @mpac_national Media Coverage of the 2014 Media Awards: "The Nation" Magazine Haaretz Daily Kos
