Welcome to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. I’m Glen Ford, along with my co-host Nellie Bailey. Coming up: For the 22 nd year in a row, community activists vow never to stop fighting for the freedom of Black political prisoners, and to reunited their families. And, a noted scholar and activist explains how white supremacy shapes U.S. domestic and foreign policy.
Black Agenda Report Managing Editor Bruce Dixon has caused a big stir in left political circles with his latest article, titled “Intersectionality is a Hole. Afro-Pessimism is a Shovel – We Need to Stop Digging.” Dixon says the term “Intersectionality” has become a tool to pull people away from class-based struggle against the capitalist rulers. Dixon appeared on the long-running and highly influential Chicago radio program, “This is Hell,” hosted by Chuck Mertz.
In his interview with “This is Hell” host Chuck Mertz, Bruce Dixon made reference to Jeffrey B. Perry, the esteemed activist and scholar. Perry has spent decades studying and popularizing the works of Hubert Harrison, the early 20 th century Black socialist, and Theodore Allen, author of “The Invention of the White Race.” Glen Ford spoke with Jeff Perry.
In New York City, last week, the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee held its 22 nd annual dinner in Tribute to Black Political Prisoners and Their Families. Dayqui Kioni Sadiki chairs the committee.
