This is the part of History that is being ignored. The writings and speeches of Marcus Garvey is good reading. This is the ugly part of how the blacks in America was divided. If we take a look back and picture a America where ALL blacks stook together on one accord for one purpose, it would not be hard to imagine where we would be now. This book takes my mind to that thought. Marcus Garvey was not a racist, he just loved his race. I loved his writing and what he was trying to accomplish!
Interesting read.Marcus Garvey is ahead of his time as far as seeking economic and social justice for Black people. He also had a world view in regard to this problem which was also ahead of its time as well. To gain the amount of followers and develop his organization to the level and membership he did he had to be a very charismatic person and speaker. His imperfections are also pretty glaring to, he has a displayed hatred for mixed people and Jews. And his embrace of white nationalists is also just flat our weird. In these instances he shows how behind in his thinking he is as well. While I think he truly believed what he believed with conviction that his plans were the best path for him and people of African descent. He was also just misguided on how to go about doing it and also what was actually best for the African Diaspora.
Reading his letters and speeches opened a perspective undocumented by historical accounts of his life and times. These show a man with a crystal clear perspective on the destructive 'divide and oppress' ethos that historically characterizes the U.S. Federal and State governments. My admiration for his tireless dedication and work to build a dynamic, international, afro-centric business coalition puts him in the company of Madam C.J.Walker, Booker T. Washington and Malcolm X.
