Because of the global scope and the different venues of American, African,
and Caribbean Garveyism, the project decided early on to publish documents
pertaining to North America, Africa, and the Caribbean in three separate
but collateral series. This division not only helps the Main Series to
retain much of the cohesion of the North American movement that it documents,
creation of the two other series gives the edition an opportunity to make
major contributions to both African and Caribbean studies. The Main Series
covers Marcus Garvey's life and the history of the UNIA in North America,
where the movement was centered. The African Series covers the Garvey movement
in sub-Saharan Africa, including the responses of European colonial and
metropolitan governments to the perceived challenge of African Garveyism.
The Caribbean Series will cover the movement in the territories of the
Caribbean Basin, including the Central American littoral as well as the
South American mainland. The comprehensive scope and originality of the
project's documentary research and collection-the product of more than
twenty years of research on three continents-distinguish it as unique in
African-American, Caribbean, and African historiography.
