A habitual troublemaker and incorrigible activist, Bruce Dixon has been comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable since 1968.
As a rank and file member of the Black Panther Party in 1969-1970, a 1970s rank-and-file union activist in a string of factories, plants and workplaces, a 1980s community organizer in what were then some of the nation's poorest neighborhoods, to organizing and consulting through the 1990s Dixon has built an impressive record of service in and to the cause of human liberation.
In 2002 he began writing articles for Black Commentator, the predecessor of BlackAgendaReport.com. He broke the first accurate analyses of the phenomena around the election of Denise Majette over Cynthia McKinney in Georgia that year.
As managing editor of the weekly Journal of African-American Political Thought and Action, BlackAgendaReport.com, Dixon is chiefly responsible for maintaining that web site. He currently resides in Marietta GA.
In early 2009, Bruce approached CampaignFoundations.com for help migrating BlackAgendaReport.com from Joomla to Drupal to accommodate its evolving strategy for engaging its readers. Soon afterward he joined the Georgia Green Party's state committee and announced his new political affiliation in a column on the BAR site. When CampaignFoundations.com incorporated in November 2009, Bruce joined the team where his skills as a community and political organizer, writer, trainer and graphic designer have been invaluable assets for our clients.
