If you don�t know, get to know!
A bite-size introduction to the life of Marcus Garvey, structured in two parts:
Part 1; chronicles the life of Marcus Garvey in a first person summary form.
Part 2; gives a broader view, based on what we now know, as a result of documents which have been made public by the US and British governments. During his lifetime he was given a number of titles; political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, orator, agitator and even the Black Moses. Letters, telegrams, pamphlets and newspapers were the mediums through which information was passed. They enabled him to build an organisation that had 1000 branches in 40 countries, and a membership of over 4 million people worldwide.
He sought to bring pride to a downtrodden race. United we have strength, divided we remain weak. No wonder they feared him!
*A great deal has been written about me, both good and bad. As a result many of you will have formed an opinion of me although you have never met me, and did not know me personally. You should note that the majority of what has been written has been written by those who wished to tarnish my name, my causes, and my legacy. *
*it will be observed that the idea is not only vocational training, but also to provide lectureships in Social Sciences, Political Economy, Economics, Ethnology and sociology. What is required is the provision of more elementary schools and more vocational training, particularly agricultural, since the bulk of the population will look to agriculture for a living. To teach the other subjects in the villages is only likely to result in a large crop of Marcus Garvey's.*
