Black Agenda Report’s 13th Anniversary: An Evening of Information and Inspiration for Liberation, and a Tribute to Co-Founder Bruce Dixon
Every year presents new challenges to those struggling for human liberation. For Black Agenda Report, the essential task remains the same as when we published our first issue, on October 26, 2006: to sustain a radical, Black-led publication that can effectively intervene in the great debates of our time. We believe BAR has helped shape the Black Left political debate in this turbulent era of late stage, imperial capitalism – a period of economic catastrophe for Black and poor Americans, political disarray among “progressives,” and escalating lawlessness in U.S. foreign policy. Through it all, BAR has steadily increased both our audience and our capabilities, while waging weekly political battle with the ruling Lords of Capital, the ever-conniving “Black Misleadership Class,” and those who would “sheep-dog” the Left into alliance with corporate forces.
The BAR team has been deeply shaken by the loss of our Dear Brother and Managing Editor Bruce Dixon, this summer, but we draw inspiration and strength from his irrepressible revolutionary fervor and example. We invite all of our readers, friends and comrades to join with us for an evening of deep politics, stimulating discussion, and joyous music and refreshments from 6p to 9p on Saturday, October 26 at the People’s Forum, 320 West 37thStreet, New York City.

Tickets are $20, but no one will be turned away. For those who have donated to BAR in the past or present: No Charge – and our most profound gratitude.
Power to the People!
