History of BC
Bookmark and Share

The founders of The Black Commentator were Peter Gamble, the late Susan Lubitz Gamble and Glen Ford. Peter and Glen met in 1973 when they worked together as network broadcast journalists in Washington, D.C. Susan served as art director for BC and created the original color palette and graphic design of the publication.

The first issue of BC was published April 5, 2002.

In 1977 Glen and Peter created America's Black Forum, the first nationally syndicated Black news interview program on commercial television. Under their guidance, ABF was quoted weekly by national and international news organizations. A feat no other Black news entity has accomplished, before or since.

Gamble who serves BC as Publisher and Chief Technical Officer, is the recipient of a national Sigma Delta Chi award for public service in journalism and numerous other honors for excellence in reporting and investigative reporting. The "beats" he covered as a broadcast journalist ranged from activism in the streets to the State Department and White House. The lure of a personal computer on his desk inspired a career change in 1985 and an immersion into what he saw as the future of communications. The acquisition of computer programming skills made it possible for Peter to achieve an important level of self-reliance in the technology of the 21st century.

Ford served as Co-publisher of BC until August of 2006.

Nancy Littlefield, joined BC in 2005, after a lengthy career in corporate finance. She holds a cum laude BA (Music and Psychology) from the University of Massachusetts and a Masters in Business Administration from Northeastern University. She is a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and Gold Star Families for Peace. She serves BC as Managing Editor.
