Marcus Garvey: Human Rights Champion @ Carrie P. Meek Center



“On August 13, 1920, Marcus Garvey and the UNIA published the “Declaration of the Rights of the Negro Peoples of the World,” said Professor Geoffrey Philp. “The declaration highlighted basic human rights, which were finally included in the United Nation’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” on December 10, 1948. Garvey and the UNIA were ahead of the world body by twenty-eight years!” 

Join us for these lectures on Marcus Garvey’s visionary movement which championed the human rights of peoples of African descent in North America and the African diaspora worldwide. 

MDC recognizes Black History Month each year with an array of community and educational activities at each of its seven campuses. College administrators believe students, as well as the community at large, should be mindful of the contributions made by Black Americans throughout this country’s history, both past and present.
