Marcus Garvey and the Vision of Africa

This book is about Marcus Garvey
"Marcus Garvey and the Vision of Africa," first published in 1974 and reissued in 2011, offers a comprehensive exploration of the dynamic life and enduring impact of Marcus Garvey, a pivotal figure in the realms of racial justice, gender equality, religious freedom, and immigrant rights. Edited by John Henrik Clarke with contributions from Amy Jacques Garvey, this anthology features insightful essays and critical analyses from scholars and contemporaries, including Robert Hill and W.E.B. DuBois. The book is structured into seven parts, each marking significant periods of Garvey's life—from his formative years to his time of triumph and tragedy, enriched with Garvey's own speeches and writings. This collection not only delves into Garvey’s philosophical and operational struggles, such as the Black Star Line, but also offers an insider’s view, making it a compelling read for middle-school students exploring the complexities of early 20th-century social justice movements. This book encourages readers to reflect on how Garvey's vision resonates with today's social justice issues.
