The Marcus Garvey and UNIA Papers

The Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers

Marcus Garvey (1887-1940), leader of the largest organized mass movement in black history and the progenitor of the modern "black is beautiful" ideal, was hailed in his own time as "a black Moses." This mini-edition presents documents related to the early development and extraordinary impact of Garvey's "African Redemption" movement.
