Welcome to the Idavox Report!
The show opens with a panel of four activists: Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Christian Perez, and Margaret Kimberley. Kimberley is this week’s #Idavox Report special guest. She is also the Executive Editor and Senior Columnist at Black Agenda Report. Her Freedom Rider column appears weekly in BAR, and is republished widely elsewhere. She is the author of Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents. She is involved in several activist organizations.
The Black Agenda Report
The Black Agenda Report is a one-of-a-kind internet-based news source that is committed to providing news and analysis from a black left perspective. It was founded 15 years ago by Bruce Dixon, Glen Ford, and Margaret Kimberley herself.
We begin by discussing Glen Ford, who lost his life to cancer earlier this year. Ford was a great writer and activist who was dedicated to the struggles of Black people around the world. He was a socialist who was heavily involved in his activism, being involved in a handful of leftist organizations. Daryle got to know Ford while working with the People’s Organization for Progress. It was Ford who encouraged Margaret as she entered the world of journalism.
Lies In The Media
Margaret recalls Al Gore’s run for Presidency and describes how this event is a large part of what radicalized her. The blatantly stolen election made her realize that there were a lot of things in the world that didn’t add up. History books and the news don’t give an accurate picture of global events, but people just go along with them anyway.
Mainstream media outlets are now corporate, capitalist monopolies. In the past, Twitter and Facebook have censored true stories from the public’s sight so that they could not be posted on their platforms. Margaret believes that these mainstream outlets should be regulated for utility. In contrast to media moguls, the internet serves as a decentralization of information. The Black Agenda Report uses the internet as a means to further activism by spreading legitimate information.
Renowned activist Daryle Lamont Jenkins hosts the #Idavox Report every Tuesday at 8PM EST along with Brian Powers and Christian Perez.

Who’s On The Show?
The radical right is dangerous and needs to be kept in check. That is where long-time Revolution Radio comrade Daryle Lamont Jenkins comes in. Daryle is an award-winning author and producer who has been in activism for over 30 years. Today, Daryle works tirelessly with his company, One People’s Project, and its newsline, Idavox, to identify and doxx members of dangerous right-wing groups. More often than not, these groups include white supremacists and Nazis. Knowledge is power and the knowledge that Daryle collects gives us the power to fight back.

He has been working in activism for over 20 years. Brian’s activism began in New Jersey but has since expanded nationally as he has moved to Maine. He got his start in the labor sector, and today his activism includes but is not limited to issues involving labor, immigration, incarceration, foreign policy, poverty, cannabis justice, mutual aid, police violence, and justice system reform.
