Carol M. Swain, Ph.D., is a professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She also happens to be a Conservative Christian African American with traditional family views. As far as secular universities go, this makes her a rare bird. In an academic setting where "tolerance" has ironically become "intolerant" toward Judeo-Christian worldviews and African Americans who are conservative, she's got two strikes against her. And she courageously faces this every day.
Dr. Swain has become a public figure because she stands up to regular discrimination on campus for her politically incorrect values. There have been outcries and petitions from students to oust her from her position, without much resistance from Vanderbilt's administration. School officials have put out press releases separating themselves from her because "her values are not those of the university." She is outspoken on numerous radio and TV programs, unveiling the growing hostility toward conservative and biblical viewpoints at colleges and universities. Included here is a short newscast video about a petition that was brought against her.
