Black Star: Diasporic Politics in the Age of Garvey, 1919–1940

Adam Ewing is a PhD candidate in the Department of History at Harvard University. His dissertation explores the spread and articulation of Garveyism—the pan-African, anticolonial movement spearheaded by Jamaican radical Marcus Garvey—throughout Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States after World War I. He is particularly interested in the uses of diaspora as a conceptual building block for local politics. Ewing received a BA from Queen’s University and an MA from the University of South Carolina. He has received generous support from the Charles Warren Center, the GSAS Graduate Society, and the Marcus Garvey Memorial Foundation.
