The Legacy of Marcus Garvey

The Marcus Garvey Movement or the Congress of National Afro-Americans (CNAA) was originally founded by Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican nationalist. A number of African Americans migrated to the British colony in search of freedom and opportunities, and Garvey founded his movement to provide them with that opportunity.

Some people say that Garvey inspired the nation of Jamaica, but he didn’t invent Jamaica or cause Jamaica to be independent, just that he provided the people of Jamaica with that opportunity. He also had the courage to speak his mind and say what other people would not say.

You may remember Garvey as the eccentric uncle of both Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. You may remember him as the great leader of the Black Power movement that led to the boycott of American goods and created opportunities for African Americans who otherwise wouldn’t have lived to see their golden years. Garvey’s words are still being quoted to this day and serve as inspiration for those looking to achieve equality and freedom for all people in the world.

One of the best ways to learn about Garvey is to read the writings of Marcus Garvey. He loved to write, and in all of his writing he seems to use the same word for different purposes. For example, in one letter he says that, “The great symbolic act which will unite the oppressed masses of the nation, and get them on their feet, and have their teeth set together, and have their backs to the wall, are to break the chains which have been fastened upon their necks, by a narrow band of white men.” If you can understand that the chains in that sentence are for his slaves, you can understand the essence of what he is trying to say.

In a letter written to his son, Marcus Garvey said that, “I have no doubts that your letter will go to the whole world, as far as man can go. It is the voice of humanity at its best; the voice of love, and the voice of justice.”

There is more to Garvey than the freedom he claimed to be giving to his people. He taught the importance of education, which is still an important idea today. He was proud of the fact that his message reached out to millions around the world, in spite of his detractors, and he knew that he had the potential to change the world, if only enough people read his letters.

Garvey believed in self-improvement and self-development. He believed that you could be happy, healthy, strong, and free. It is no coincidence that the CNAA was founded by Garvey’s son, who wanted to spread his father’s message of education and self-improvement.

The last piece of wisdom that Marcus Garvey left behind is the importance of living our life right. He never wasted a moment of his life worrying about tomorrow or the world he was leaving. He made no apologies for the way he lived his life and died.

In his final message to his son, Marcus Garvey wanted to remind his son, that, “We may never see our life’s work finished; but it is finished when it is done.” This message to his son is important today because we don’t want to leave a legacy of regret and failure. Garvey’s message to his son lives on today as his legacy of self-improvement and education.

The lives of Marcus Garvey and the CNAA are the same. The lives of Marcus Garvey and the CNAA are of the same kind of inspiration to those who look for their own purpose, purpose in life. When you see the world around you, you see the legacy of Marcus Garvey and the CNAA.

It’s easy to be inspired by a man like Marcus Garvey, who leaves us a legacy of hope and possibility for the future. We should take the messages he left us very seriously and try to emulate his example. Learn from his words, and emulate his example.
