    • Society & Culture

Swaady Martin is the daughter of a militant Black Panther who fled to
Africa. She grew up in the Ivory Coast and ended up pursuing an elite
education and corporate career, yet remains at heart and in spirit a
revolutionary. We covered many topics: her background, colonialism, the Covid narrative and attitudes about it in West and South Africa, and the spiritual crisis of the developed world.

Bio: Swaady Martin is an internationally recognized African leader.
Spirituality and African identity are at the heart of all Swaady’s many
and varied roles. Her academic background includes London School of Economics (LSE) and Harvard Divinity School. She is also an Archbishop Desmond Tutu Leadership Fellow. A former Corporate Executive at General Electric (GE), Swaady is the founder of Yswara African Tea, Tounché Global Consciousness Summit & Events and LovingKindness Boma (through which she publishes mindful, multicultural picture books for children). She sits on several boards, including the African Leadership Institute(Afli).
