Marcus Garvey Words Come to Pass: Washington Informer


Marcus Garvey's genius lies in his development and implementation of African fundamentalism which laid the theoretical framework for black liberation. He gave black people a sense of identity and an appreciation for their past accomplishments and place in history, preached self-reliance and called on African people to use their "intelligence and creative genius" to solve their problems. Under the mantra of "One God, One Aim, One Destiny" Garvey was the first modern black leader to meld the secular and spiritual elements of black people into a theoretical and practical framework that worked for the advancement of all black people.
