On this day we honor the birthday of the prophet “The Right Excellent” Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr. The Jamaican born Garvey sought to unify Africans across the globe starting first by rising up the Blacks in America. His organization the UNIA-ACL created jobs and opportunities in America with the goal of freeing us financially from the grips of white oppressors post slavery. His philosophies and opinions were the base of the philosophy of Malcolm X.image
