Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr., National Hero of Jamaica (August 17, 1887 - June 10, 1940), was a publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, Black nationalist, orator, and founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL).

Prior to the twentieth century, leaders such as Prince Hall, Martin Delaney, Edward Wilmot Blyden, and Henry Highland Garnet advocated the involvement of the African diaspora in African affairs. Garvey was unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement focusing on Africa known as Garveyism. Promoted by the UNIA as a movement of African Redemption, Garveyism would eventually inspire others, ranging from the Nation of Islam, to the Rastafari movement (which proclaims Garvey to be a prophet). The intention of the movement was for those of African ancestry to "redeem" Africa and for the European colonial powers to leave it. His essential ideas about Africa were stated in an editorial in the Negro World entitled "African Fundamentalism" where he wrote: Our union must know no clime boundary or nationality...let us hold together under all climes and in every country...

Why am I using this great page to network? Because life has become a game of hide and seek to some people, and we're losing.

Who I am? i'm one of the poorest in America. And having been incarcerated three times, I'm also a least in the kingdom of God.

But I know the Lord, now, and I've done my part by publishing some truths given to me by the Holy Spirit. I know preachers run from Jesus' truth, but I can smile, and be proud.

God bless all of you!
