Glen Ford worked as a network broadcast journalist in Washington, D.C., and created in 1977, along with Peter Gamble, America's Black Forum, which was the first nationally-syndicated black news interview program on commercial television. America's Black Forum was quoted weekly by national and international news organizations, a feat no other black news entity had achieved before and has not achieved since. Mr. Ford co-founded and is the executive editor of the Black Agenda Report. He is also author of The Big Lie: An Analysis of US Media Coverage of the Granada Invasion.
