Editorial Reviews


"Black Power and Decolonization both have been profoundly pivotal movements but it is only with the publication of this marvelous and riveting book that these two potent trends have been linked so effectively. Persuasively argued and beautifully written, this book makes an effective case for the importance of Bermuda as a laboratory for political developments that reverberated significantly on the U.S. mainland." - Gerald Horne, Author of Mau Mau in Harlem?: The U.S. and the Liberation of Kenya

"Black Power in Bermuda is a concise and scholarly discussion of the struggle for civil rights, Black nationalism, and political independence evolving in Bermuda during the mid to late twentieth century. Dr. Swan grounds his analysis in the historical context for rights that was pursued by blacks in Bermuda before this period and he demonstrates the interconnectedness between these local political movements and the larger, global, anti-colonialism of the period. Bermuda, he demonstrates, was part them: as influential contributor, as receiver of influence. Dr. Swan s narrative, strongly reflective of classic historiographic method, adeptly utilizing considerable primary and secondary source material, provides an important and powerful voice to the discourse on Bermuda s political history, and is destined to become a classic in the field." - Clarence V.H. Maxwell, Assistant Professor, Latin American and Caribbean History, Millersville University

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was once a student of Professor Swan's at Howard University. Being from Memphis, TN, this text inspired me to search the far corners of my city to locate and reveal the Black Power spirit in my hometown. The great lengths the author had to take in order to construct this text is a testament to the importance of the role in which it plays. Bermuda is still not completely free from its colonial powers. And for the individuals who no longer feel the direct effect of colonialism, our mind still has not been completely freed.
Some may read this text to learn more about ways in which one can learn the patterns that colonial powers used and continue to use in order to suppress freedom. Others may read this text to gather an idea of methods to free themselves and their communities.
