Summary

Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) was an orator of Black Nationalism, and founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League. He advanced a Pan-African philosophy which inspired a global movement, known as Garveyism. This book, The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey (1923) was compiled by his wife, Amy Euphemia Jacques Garvey, mainly from his speeches. 

Promoting unity between Africans and the African diaspora, he campaigned for an end to European colonial rule in Africa and encouraged the political unification of the continent. Garvey's black nationalism went hand in hand with his Christian outlook and he contended that African Americans ought to view God as black and the Virgin Mary as a "Black Madonna”. The main message of his speeches was that Blacks should seek material, social, and political success.

A Revealing Look at a Great Black Leader

I gained a great deal of knowledge and respect for the philosophy and opinions of Marcus Garvey. This narration helped me to better understand who he was and what he was trying to do to help African-Americans. I think his opinions and philosophy are just as relevant in 2020 as they were during his time. Listening to the philosophy and opinions of Marcus Garvey made me very proud. He was a "man among men."

Amazing!

Although I do not agree with every part of the strategy. It was AMAZING! And could have worked in his lifetime! He was a clear seer, visionary, and diligent follower and teacher of Christ. #MindBlown

Very Informative

Got to hear a lot about Garvey's philosphies and the way he thought about black unity. Sad to say we still have to have this mindset today.

Outstanding Narrator and Book

I really enjoyed this book and the clarity of the narrator in translating the Message of Garvey. Even though this wasn’t his voice, the message came across strong and clear. I feel the pride of being a Black Man
