- Pro-socialism journalist
Peter Gamble is the co-founder (along with Glen Ford) and co-editor of The Black Commentator (BC), a weekly Internet webzine that publishes articles and information on issues it deems pertinent to the African American community. Describing its target audience as “African Americans and their allies in the struggle for social and economic justice,” BC’s stated objective is to provide “commentary, analysis and investigation – elements of political dialogue that are absolutely essential to the creation of movements for social change.” BC’s suggestions for social change are predicated on the axiom that America is a “racist society” that has done virtually nothing substantive to atone for, or to reform, its past transgressions and injustices. When BC examines American society, it sees evidence of racism and continuing injustice everywhere.
Gamble has had a lengthy career in journalism. In 1977 he and Ford founded America’s Black Forum, the first-of-its-kind, nationally syndicated African-American news interview program on television.
