As the editor of East Asia, it is my pleasure to introduce our writer Dwayne Wong (Omowale). Dwayne is Pan-African activist and author with a passion for history and culture. Born in Georgetown, Guyana, Dwayne’s background and experiences include Chinese ancestry through his father, which has shaped his perspective and informed his work as a writer.

With a focus on African and African Diaspora history, Dwayne’s articles and writings have garnered attention for their insightful and thought-provoking analysis. In “The Man Who Ended an Empire: The Legacy of Sun Yat-sen,” for our East Asia publication, he explored the impact of Sun Yat-sen on Chinese history and the wider world.

In this writer spotlight, we delve deeper into Dwayne’s life and work. From his family’s history to his connection to his Chinese heritage, we explore the influences that have shaped his writing and activism. Join us as we learn more about his passion for history, his thoughts on cultural identity, and his vision for the future.
