With recent celebrations for 130th year since his birth,
we once again come together to reflect on the life and works of the great man,
Marcus Mosiah Garvey.
Jamaican National Hero and International Icon
Business Man, Political Leader, Publisher and Journalist
Pan-Africanism and Black Nationalism Movement
Negro World- African Fundamentalism
Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL)
Black Star Line, Shipping and Passenger line
He inspired a global movement for the African Diaspora from all over the world to take an active interest in Africa and return to their Homeland.
When we take a closer look at Garvey’s philosophies we see that we have a template to build towards Social, Economical and Spiritual freedom for all. http://www.blackhistorystudies.com/
His words and philosophies are as relevant today as ever.
Knowledge of Self,
Self Reliance and an Entrepreneurial Spirit are the foundations upon which Garvey’s ideas are built.
Encompassing these ideas into our psyche and living their principles would give us a tremendous advantage in the modern world of today.
