Quito Swan

Professor Quito Swan obtained his Ph.D. in African Diaspora History from Howard University in 2005. His areas of expertise include Black internationalism, Black Power and decolonization across the Americas, Africa and the South Pacific. Swan teaches courses on the global African Diaspora, including social movements, Black Power, maroonage and black protest though music such as Reggae, Hip-Hop and Afro-Beat. He advises Howard's Chess Club and its Students Against Mass Incarceration (S.A.M.I.) and is currently the Undergraduate Director for the History Department.

Swan’s first book, Black Power in Bermuda and the Struggle for Decolonization (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009) focused on Black Power, Bermuda and anti-colonialism in the West Indies. His current research project is Pauulu’s Diaspora: Black Power, Crossroads and Sustainable Revolution. It is essentially a political narrative of the twentieth century Diaspora anchored by the enigmatic escapades of Roosevelt Pauulu Browne, a world-renowned Pan-Africanist and United Nations expert on sustainable development. Sponsored by an eight-month 2014 National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship for University Faculty, Swan has conducted research across the Americas, Europe, Africa and the South Pacific for the current manuscript.

He is also co-editor of Michigan State University Press's Ruth Simms Hamilton African Diaspora Series.
