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. Earlier this month, Black Agenda Report was well-represented at the Left Forum, in New York City, the nation’s largest yearly gathering of leftwing activists, organizers and thinkers. This week, we continue our coverage of the presentations made at the Left Forum by the Black Agenda Report team, and those who work closely with us. Black Agenda Radio host Nellie Bailey served as moderator for two of our panels. She’ll be introducing BAR managing editor Bruce Dixon, and BAR editor and columnist Ajamu Baraka, who ran for vice president on the Green Party ticket in 2016. We’ll also have presentations by Dr. Anthony Montiero, the Duboisian scholar based in Philadelphia, on the theme, “Understanding Our Resistance,” and Kevin Zeese, of Popular Resistance, who discusses ways to prevent the Co-Opting of the Left.
And that it’s for this edition of Black Agenda Radio. Be sure to visit us at BlackAgendaReport.com, where you’ll find a new and provocative issue, each Wednesday. That’s www.BlackAgendaReport.com. It’s the place for news, commentary and analysis, from the Black Left.
