He is also a leading scholar of Cuban music.

 

Sublette is a 2005 Guggenheim Fellow. In 2012 he was a Knight-Luce Fellow for Reporting on Global Religion at the University of Southern California. He did research in Angola, which resulted in a four-episode Hip Deep Angola radio series, produced for the public radio program Afropop Worldwide

 

In 2015, Sublette and his wife Constance published The American Slave Coast: A History of the Slave-Breeding Industry, a comprehensive history of slave trading in the southern colonies and states .
