Columbia, South Carolina Mar 23, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Award-winning educator and an advocate of racial equality, Gregg Marcel Dixon is proud to announce his Congressional run on Wednesday, March 16th, 2022. He is officially going to be a candidate for South Carolina’s U.S. Congressional District 6. Mr. Dixon plans to be the first true Reparationist to sit in Congress and defend the causes of those in South Carolina’s Low Country. After a lot of effort and waiting, the South Carolina state legislators finally approved the redistricting of the county’s map.

From a very young age, Mr. Dixon has been aware of racial discrimination across the country. As per a study, the United States Government has cost the United States sixteen trillion dollars. When slavery ended in 1865, the Black Americans owned nearly 0.5% of the total wealth of America. Today, when the Black community makes up about 15% of the population own less than 3% of the entire United States

About his own district , he says, ‘Combined data and research has reported South Carolina District Six as the 6th POOREST in the United States out of 435 districts total and we, its black residents, are the poorest, as we are throughout the nation. Somehow, we have come to think of this as normal but it is not normal, nor is it acceptable, I am running because we deserve better, and repairing Black America will fix all of America because until we all stand, we all have fallen.’

Born in Georgia, Gregg Marcel Dixon now lives in Jasper County and now works as a public school teacher. He has been a popular teacher among his students. He has gained a lot of recognition for his contributions as a teacher. The Congressional candidate has planned a tour to engage with local HBCU student body governments,Fraternities/Sororities and Alumni Association’s in particular at Benedict College, Allen University, South Carolina State University, and Claflin University of Columbia and Orangeburg to bring awareness to his campaign and to educate on the importance of voter registration.
