I’m a Georgia-based journalist and author. My work focuses on urban planning and development, civil and human rights, and social and economic justice. I’ve written three books on Atlanta history.

After a quarter century in Atlanta, I relocated to Athens, Georgia, where I served as editorial adviser, publisher and, ultimately, executive director of The Red & Black, an independent student media organization. I teach part-time at the University of Georgia and previously taught at Emory University.
