Why I Support Marcus Garvey's Exoneration



I want everyone to be comfortable in her or his own skin.

Racism has been a source of suffering for my people.

In order to become comfortable in our own skins, we need to change HOW we think about ourselves.

Marcus Garvey's ideas changed how I thought about myself.

Many people do not know about Marcus Garvey’s ideas.


With the exoneration of Marcus Garvey, more people will learn about his ideas of RESPECT (Redemption, Education, Self-Reliance, Entrepreneurship, Community, and Tradition).

I believe that if we incorporate these ideas into our lives, it will begin the healing process of becoming more comfortable in our own skins.

“Set the captives free!”
