Journalist, Author, Itinerant Professor

I’m an Atlanta-based author and journalist. Most of my work focuses on how cities work—or don't—with an emphasis on social and economic justice, civil and human rights, and urban development and planning. I have written three books on Atlanta history and am at work on a fourth, about the Great Fire of 1917. In addition to working as the deputy editor of Atlanta magazine, I teach journalism—most recently at Emory University and the University of Georgia.
