Tony Martin - The Majority Press Books

Black Classic Press is pleased to announce the republication of selected titles formerly published by Tony Martin and The Majority Press (TMP), which Martin founded in 1986.  At the time of his death in 2013, Martin was considered one of the leading authorities on Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). The UNIA, founded by Garvey, was the largest Black mass organization ever founded, with membership estimated between two and six million people. Initially, Black Classic Press will distribute books from the remaining inventory produced by The Majority Press. As that inventory is exhausted, BCP will re-introduce the TMP titles as a series imprint. 

Born in Trinidad, Tony Martin received his M.A. and Ph.D. from Michigan State University, he taught for most of his career and was tenured at Wellesley College. Martin lectured widely.  View him here on the Marcus Garvey episode of BBC Radio 4’s Great Lives.
