“Marcus Garvey: Angel of Black Success”



 “Marcus Garvey: Angel of Black Success” 
By 
Geoffrey Philp*

In the early 1900s, one of the unfortunate outcomes of the fratricidal battle between the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), which was founded by Marcus Garvey, and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), which was founded by W.E.B. DuBois, was the further splintering of the Black community—a state from which the latter has never fully recovered. It may be argued that the NAACP “won” the battle. Sadly, the models of entrepreneurship and self-reliance that Garvey advocated were partially lost by the Black community due to the NAACP’s emphasis on legal redress and governmental assistance to resolve issues that Garvey said should be resolved within the Black community.

After delivering over 10,000+ signatures to Frederica S. Wilson, the Coalition for the Exoneration of Marcus Garvey  is now focusing on the White House: 


Exoneration is first step in the campaign to promote the values (Redemption, Education, Self-Reliance, Entrepreneurship, Community, and Tradition) to which Garvey dedicated his life.
