ABOUT ROHULAMIN QUANDER
Rohulamin Quander, author and multi-generational Washingtonian, is a member of the internationally renowned Quander Family, whose American lineage traces back more than 300 years in the Maryland and Virginia area. The family’s history includes involuntary servitude to George Washington at his Mount Vernon plantation. He earned both his B.A. and J.D. degrees from Howard University, Washington, D.C. Quander is a retired Senior Administrative Judge for the District of Columbia.
He is the author of four books (three published), two of which highlight significant components of African American life, including aspects of membership in Greek-letter organizations, and their history and culture. The third book, a biography of James W. Quander, his father, relates his dad’s life long struggle, but ultimate triumph, as he faced the many debilitating challenges of diabetes. His next book will recount the history of the Quander Family, tracing their presence and historic contributions from the 17th century to the present.
Judge Quander, a member of many civic and social service organizations and movements, has expanded his sights to include offering guided tours to historic sites in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. Although schooled in the traditional Monuments and Memorials tours, which remain popular, he is also focused upon the African American history and cultural contributions that often lie beneath the surface. In that respect, he can tailor his tours to include both aspects.
