Memphis native. Alabama newspaper columnist and podcast host. University of Memphis and Jacksonville State University graduate. Cardinals fan.

I'm a journalist, an editor, a writer, a storyteller, a researcher and a podcast host. I write about politics and poverty, history and culture, race and equality in the Deep South. Splendid stories are everywhere: in 100-year-old basements, in City Council meetings, in church pews, in dusty archives and computer databases, in aging chapels on abandoned military bases, on downtown rooftops, atop bell towers of Southern churches. Everyone has a story. It's journalists' job to tell them -- accurately, fairly, and without fear.
