Black Agenda Report
Journalists Glen Ford, Bruce Dixon and Margaret Kimberley edit, write and publish the weekly Web-only Black Agenda Report. Its narrative is “African American political thought and action,” with a focus on justice. Ford suggests that only social movements can push Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama to craft progressive policies. Dixon uncovers the Federal Communications Commission’s hidden giveaway of the digital TV spectrum to corporate America. Kimberley follows the effort of Rep. Dennis Kucinich to impeach President George W. Bush for high crimes and misdemeanors and to remove him from office. Kemit Mawakana, a.k.a. “The Seven-Foot Poet,” also perches at the BAR, which exists solely on the donations of readers and listeners.
