“Liberate the minds of men & ultimately you will liberate the bodies of men.”
Marcus Garvey (1887 - 1940)
CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER
Jamaican civil rights leader Marcus Garvey was the first person to advance the political consciousness of the African diaspora on a large scale.
Garvey's philosophy emphasized black empowerment through economic, political, & social freedom. His doctrine of self-sufficiency & call to “Stand tall!” and “Unite!” helped to psychologically liberate the minds of generations.
