Transcript of Marcus Garvey

The Harlem Renaissance Marcus Garvey's early life: Garvey's impact on African Americans Marcus Garvey's famous quote: He was born in St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica from 1887 to 1940. Garvey aimed to organize blacks everywhere but achieved his greatest impact in the United States. He achieved and enhanced the growing black aspirations for justice, wealth, and a sense of community. During World War I and the 1920s, his Universal Negro Improvement Association was the largest black secular organization in African-American history. Marcus Moziah Garvey founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association in 1914 outside the United States until he came to the country to secure financial help in 1916 where he founded his movement in the country. This organization is based on its philosophy on the need to unite "all people of Negro or African parentage." The goals of the UNIA were to increase racial pride, aid black people throughout the world, and "to establish a central nation for the race." The hard times of the African Americans in the United States led Garvey to establish the UNIA in New York and for the sake of economic welfare, Garvey establish two joint companies that help African Americans the feeling of dignity. Marcus Garvey was a devoted black nationalist. He was known to be one of the most influential leaders of black nationalism in the 20th century. In 1919 Mr. Garvey charted the B.S.L, also known as the black star shipping line. The B.S.L. allowed the blacks to do cross continental trade. He did believe in the racial separation, it was vital for the racial prosperity and cultural development. Garvey encouraged people to study the black history and to worship the black deity. He would warn the working blacks to avoid the manipulation of the white trade unions and communist organizations. Marcus Garvey did and still does symbolize destiny for blacks and racial pride around the world, all due to the many great things he has done for the African Americans Marcus Garvey The UNIA'S Impact to the Harlem Renassaince We are men; we have souls, we have passions, we have feelings, we have hopes, we have desires, like any other race in the world. The cry is raised all over the world today of Canada for the Canadians, of America for the Americans, of England for the English, of France for the French, of Germany for the Germans - do you think it is unreasonable that we, the Blacks of the world, should raise the cry of Africa for the Africans?
