Give thanks MarcusGarveyLives,

This month is always a special one for us as it symbolises not only 'emancipation' but also resistance and remembrance.

I think this post says it best;

The best way to commemorate the Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey's birth is to continue to implement his philosophies and opinions if we are to change our positions in the world, from a state of dependency and humiliation to becoming the great and respected people we once were.


I have started work on a children’s book that includes Garvey and a few others of our great Ancestors. I will try hard to ensure this time next year it will be ready for publication and in time for distribution by Kwanzaa/Christmess.

May the Ancestors continue to guide and protect us.

Ase

@ Marcus Garvey Lives

Thank you and those who organised the UNIA unveiling event yesterday for refreshing our memory and honoring our Ancestors.

Sadly I failed in my desire to finish my children's book on the same topic. I will try to find the space to continue working on it for 2012.

"Where did the name of the organization come from? It was while speaking to a West Indian Negro who was a passenger with me from Southampton, who was returning home to the East Indies from Basutoland with his Basuto wife, I further learned of the horrors of native life in Africa. He related to me in conversation such horrible and pitiable tales that my heart bled within me. Retiring from the conversation to my cabin, all day and the following night I pondered over the subject matter of that conversation, and at midnight, lying flat on my back, the vision and thought came to me that I should name the organization the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities (Imperial) League. Such a name I thought would embrace the purpose of all black humanity. Thus to the world a name was born, a movement created, and a man became known."

I'd like to give thanks to Michael Williams and Cindy Soso of BIS Publications who gave an informative presentation in celebration of Marcus Mosiah Garvey to a full house at City Hall yesterday. :clap:bis-garvey-2015.jpg
