Petition Congress: Exonerate Marcus Garvey

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of speaking with Queen Mother Dr. Delois N. Blakely about the petition to exonerate the Right Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Along with her blessing, she invoked the memory of the ancestors Queen Mother Moore, Mwalimu Dudley Thompson, and Mwalimu Dr. Julius Nyrere, and instructed me to broaden the scope of our petition.

In Queen Mother Blakely’s view, those of us who live in the United States should contact our representatives in the House of Representatives to reintroduce HB 24, which was presented by Representative Charles Rangel to the Congress in January 2007. She also stated that Representative John Conyers would be a worthy ally in our cause.

I have acted on her advice. Here is the petition:


This petition should only be signed by US citizens. If you are not a US citizen, please use this opportunity to start petitioning the countries of which you are a citizen.

Queen Mother also suggested that signees in all other countries should contact their governmental representatives urging them to join together for the exoneration of the Right Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. She made a special emphasis in mentioning the Honorable Portia Simpson-Miller and the Honorable Edward Seaga of Jamaica and said they could be extremely helpful in getting the support of CARICOM and African Union members.

We will also need help with any Black organizations, fraternities, and sororities that will be willing to assist with the original petition. Let’s start a Marcus Garvey network so that WE can support ALL Garvey efforts!

Let's put this dream to reality.

One Love
