    Philosophy, Religion & Life - The Philosophy of Marcus Garvey

    in Culture

    Please join me, Zhe Levels Scott, as I explore the life, accomplishments, and philosophy of Marcus Garvey. In light of the many young black men being systematically targeted by the american injustice system exploring the proposed philosophy and solutions proposed and implemented by Marcus Garvey deserves exploration. Garveyism has inspired the philosophy of the diaspora from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafarian movement. 


    This discussion will not only look at Garvey and Garveyism, but it will also explore how his philosophy may or may not be relevant for us today.
