Black Power and the Garvey Movement - Theodore G. Vincent
It is a unique book, not only in tracing the beginnings of Black Power (Garveyism) but in following its ramifications..." AMY JACQUES GARVEY
This provocative study examines the far-reaching influence of Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association. Theodore G. Vincent details UNIA’s origins and clarifies the many myths and controversies surrounding the organization and its founder. Initially written to explore the black militancy movement of the 1920s from the point of view of the Black Power struggles of the 1960s, the author’s new introduction adds a 21st-century perspective. (UNIA). 1970*. Paperback.

After being introduced to the many positive outcomes from the UNIA and specifically the initiative Mr. Garvey spearheaded for independence, liberation and freedom of Africans throughout the diaspora, I wanted to review additional material devoted to the life of Marcus Garvey.
