Strong Christian Beliefs

I am a follower of Jesus Christ who believes that faith in Him should be evidenced by a lifestyle that reveals his influence on our lives.  I honor and respect the wisdom of God’s Word as revealed through the Scriptures found in the Old and New Testaments of the Judeo-Christian Bible.

I believe our nation has been exceptional throughout the centuries, because of the wisdom and faith of the Founding Fathers who sought to establish an everlasting covenant with the God of Israel.  Their wisdom is found in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.  If America is to survive as a nation, we must rediscover our roots and unite as one people.  We must recognize that multiculturalism and identity politics fuels division and divisiveness.  As Matthew 12: 25-27 suggests, a house divided against itself cannot stand.

Award Winning Author

Dr. Swain is the author or editor of eight books. Her first book, Black Faces, Black Interests: The Representation of African Americans in Congress (Harvard University Press, 1993, 1995), won the Woodrow Wilson prize for the best book published in the U. S. on government, politics or international affairs in 1994, and was cited twice by U.S. Supreme Court.
