Carol Swain Documentary

Carol Swain Documentary

From high school dropout and teenage mother to esteemed Vanderbilt University law professor, keynote speaker Carol M. Swain is passionate about empowering others to confidently raise their conservative voices in the public square. Dr. Swain’s education and experiences make her a credible and powerful force for change in today’s social and political climate where conservatives are intimidated to champion an often-unpopular message.
Carol Swain’s own courageous voice for conservative causes is expressed among a variety of popular media. She’s a frequent guest on Hannity’s: Great American Panel on Fox News and appeared regularly on CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight.
  • She has also appeared on BBC Radio, NPR, CNN’s AC360 (with Anderson Cooper), Fox News Live, PBS’ NewsHour (with Jim Lehrer), C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, and ABC’s Headline News.
Dr. Swain’s published works have achieved many accolades. Her highly acclaimed book, Black Faces, Black Interests: The Representation of African Americans in Congress, has received numerous awards, including:
  • One of seven Outstanding Academic Books of 1994 by Choice (American Library Association)
  • Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award in 1994 (sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation at Princeton University for the best book published on government, politics or international affairs)
  • D.B. Hardeman Prize for best book focused on U.S. Congress during 1994-1995
  • V.O. Key Award (co-recipient) for an outstanding book on southern politics
  • Black Faces was cited by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in Johnson v. DeGrandy (1994) and by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in Georgia V. Ashcroft (2003).
Debating Immigration, a collection of 18 essays by Swain and other scholars, explores the nuances of contemporary immigration and citizenship in the U.S. and Europe. She has also written and co-authored books on race relations and white nationalism. She is currently working on a new book titled Broken Vows, Banished Virtues: Reclaiming America’s Promise.
 
Her opinion pieces have been published online at The Huffington Post and in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Times and USA Today.
 
A widely recognized expert on race relations, immigration, black leadership and evangelical politics, Carol Swain is a member of the Tennessee Advisory Committee to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission and serves on the advisory board of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
 
Before joining Vanderbilt in 1999, Dr. Swain was a tenured associate professor of politics and public policy at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. She is a foundation member of the Virginia Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
