His political writing has appeared in Dissent, the Guardian, New York Times, and New York Newsday. In October of this year he will launch a regular column in The New Republic.

He worked in the administration of Atlanta’s first black mayor, Maynard H. Jackson, and has been active and a recognized voice in practical labor, left and working class politics for decades.
