I left the 40th Annual Florida Caribbean Students Association Leadership Conference on April 5, 2014, with a renewed sense of hope for the future leaders of the Caribbean.
After my presentation, RESPECT: Honoring the Life and Legacy of Marcus Garvey, many of the students expressed a desire to learn more about the exoneration efforts: https://www.causes.com/campaigns/71936-urge-president-obama-to-exonerate-marcus-garvey.
They were also interested in the connection between Marcus Garvey and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. For many, this was the first time they had learned about the values that formed the basis of Garvey’s message: Redemption, Education, Self-Reliance, Purpose, Economics, Community and Tradition.
Give thanks to Miguel Murphy and the organizers of the 40th Annual Florida Caribbean Students Assn Leadership Conference. I am now, more than ever, convinced of the necessity of this cause.
Thank you for your support.
