Nigel Gibson is an activist and scholar. He was born in London and was an active in the 1984 -1985 Miners' Strike. While in London he also met South African exiles from the Black Consciousness Movement and, in conversation with the exiles, developed some influential academic work on the movement. He later moved to the United States where he worked with Raya Dunayevskaya in the Marxist Humanism movement, studied with Edward Said and became an important theorist of Frantz Fanon on whom he has written extensively. He has also edited a major collection of work on Theodor Adorno and is a co-editor of a new collection of work on Steve Biko that includes work by scholars of the calibre of Lewis Gordon and Mabogo More. Gibson's work has been widely influential in South Africa where it is often cited by academics and activists. In recent years he has often written and spoken on the South African shack dwellers' movement Abahlali baseMjondolo. He is a member of the Committee for Academic Freedom in Africa and has addressed the United Nations.

He was previously the Assistant Director of African Studies at Columbia University and a Research Associate in African-American Studies at Harvard University. He is currently Director of the Honors Program at Emerson College.

In 2009 he was awarded the Fanon prize by the Caribbean Philosophy Association. According to the association "Gibson has set a high standard in Fanon studies and historically-informed political thought on Africa and the Caribbean."
