Tony Martin (February 21, 1942 - January 17, 2013)[1] was a Trinidad-born professor of Africana Studies at Wellesley College. He retired in June 2007 as professor emeritus after 34 years teaching at the Africana Studies Department, where he was a founding member.

He was a lecturer and author of scholarly articles about Black History, primarily the Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey, and his written works and statements regarding Jewish involvement in the American slave trade, which echo allegations made by the Nation of Islam, have been a source of ongoing controversy.
