Remember Marcus Garvey..


I think about Marcus Garvey all the time. He paved the way with his vision and the awesome responsibility that he shouldered. To say that he was a a Giant is the least that I can do to pay him his respect. Africa for Africans, At Home and Abroad!

Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr., National Hero of Jamaica (17 August 1887 – 10 June 1940[1]) was a publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, Black Nationalist, Pan-Africanist, and orator. Marcus Garvey was founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL. Garvey was unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement focusing on Africa known as Garveyism.[2] Promoted by the UNIA as a movement of African Redemption.

Rest in Power!

  1. Thank you for reminding us that we are over comers. We literally have no excuse for sitting idle and doing nothing in this life when those like Marcus Garvey excelled with so much less than we have today. I wonder what our forefathers would think of us today.
