Tony Carnes

Tony Carnes is Editor and Publisher of A Journey through NYC religions. In the course of reporting on religious responses on the Gulf Coast after Katrina, Carnes photographed wrapped bodies lying before the chapel altar and elsewhere at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans. One photo appeared on the front page of the New York Times. The photos were later used in the ProPublica/New York Times Magazine investigative story “The Deadly Choices at Memorial,” for which Sheri Fink won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Journalism. It was also the first Pulitzer Prize given to an online media publication. The story won a National Magazine award from the National Magazine Award and a Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Chi award. Carnes wondered if the the ProPublica model of web investigative journalism could be applied to religion reporting in New York City. He has produced a documentary on Jacob Riis, his personal hero among NYC journalists. He is co-editor of New York Glory: religions in the city (with Anna Karpathakis) and Asian American Religions: the making and remaking of borders and boundaries (with Fenggang Yang), both published by New York University Press. He is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, the Online News Association, Religion Newswriters Association, the Deadline Club and the Society for the Social Scientific Study of Religion. For Christianity Today he has produced many award-winning, influential stories.

The slavocrats won and the baptism of slaves ceased. For the first time, commercial values in Manhattan trumped faith and moral values.

The anti-slavery theologians often referred to slavery as “theft of humans” and a violation of the eighth of the Ten Commandments. But the slavocrats gained more elite supporters than did the theologians of freedom.

The connections between faith and city planning are undeniable. Faith-based groups rebuild areas after disasters, they develop affordable housing plans, and they help the poor. Additionally, social movements that have profoundly changed society, like the civil rights movement, were guided by faith. Yet planning education generally does not deal with faith.
