Marcus Garvey

Marcus Mosiah Garvey his name is a legend from the Americas to Zanzibar. One of the most influential figures of the 20th century, Garvey's powerful message of black pride remains as relevant today as it was almost a hundred years ago. Across generations and continents, leaders like Malcolm X; Kwame Nkrumah; Jomo Kenyatta and musical icon Bob Marley readily acknowledge the influence of Garvey's philosophy on their lives, thoughts and actions. Born in Jamaica, Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) was a journalist and entrepreneur who led an influential movement aimed at encouraging people of African descent to return to Africa. It was the world's first Pan-African movement. Now the story of Garvey's colourful life, his exploits and compelling message are captured for young readers in text by Suzane Francis-Brown and in brilliant colour illustrations by Jean-Jacque Vayssieres.
