As We Celebrate President Obama's Historic, First Time Ever, African Summit, let us reflect on our history, Marcus Garvey, Paul Cuffe and Ron Brown with Garvey's descendant, Renaldo Ricketts, Historian and Genealogist.
Cuffe, first a whaling ship captain, eventually became a ship owner, operating a number of vessels which sailed between ports along the coast of Massachusetts. By 1811 he was reputedly the wealthiest African American in the United States and the largest employer of free African Americans. Cuffe helped to establish “The Friendly Society of Sierra Leone,” a trading organization run by African Americans who had returned to West Africa. Cuffe and others hoped the success of this enterprise would establish business enterprises, generate a mass emigration of free blacks to West Africa who, once there would work to abolish slavery.

We will show the correlation between Marcus M. Garvey and John from the scriptures and their relation to the men that they came to prepare the way for. Garvey got arrested just like John was and the head was removed, but in different ways.
We will detail, as best we can, the visit between Prophet Noble Drew Ali and Marcus Garvey when Garvey was being housed as an inmate of the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary.
We will speak to Marcus Garvey's views on Islam and how he saw himself in the likeness of Prophet Mohammed.

"Marcus Garvey was a proponent of the Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements, inspiring the Nation of Islam and the Rastafarian movement. Social activist Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr. was born on August 17, 1887, in St. Ann's Bay, Jamica. Self-educated, Garvey founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association, dedicated to promoting African-Americans and resettlement in Africa. In the United States he launched several businesses to promote a separate black nation. After he was convicted of mail fraud and deported back to Jamaica, he continued his work for black repatriation to Africa. Marcus Mosiah Garvey was the last of 11 children born to Marcus Garvey, Sr. and Sarah Jane Richards. His father was a stone mason, and his mother a domestic worker and farmer. Garvey, Sr. was a great influence on Marcus, who once described him as "severe, firm, determined, bold, and strong, refusing to yield even to superior forces if he believed he was right." His father was known to have a large library, where young Garvey learned to read" (http://www.biography.com/people/marcus-garvey-9307319#awesm=~oGP6uyhVqG3DuG).

In support of the unifying efforts of sincere Moors in the establishment of Al Moroc Humanity Park; the Indigenous Moorish International Good Will Society website, and the Indigenous Moorish American Peoples Tribal Consulo, not-for-profit, not-corporate; for free Moors by free Moors; today is another day to demostrate unity at the 4th annual Marcus Garvey celebration; hosted by Sister Iyapo at Supa D's.
Despite all the hatred, lies, and division that is perpetrated by some of our own; against our own; we are here to change that self-hatred pattern because love and peace amongst our own is still a possibility, and we are here in unity to make the presence of the real Indigenous Americans known – not as negroes, blacks, coloreds, indians, light-skin, dark-skin, etc., but as Sisters and Brothers in kinship and peace through our bloodline.
Welcome to join us.
published on Apr 6, 2013 Marcus Garvey was a Jamaican-born black nationalist founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) created a 'Back to Africa' movement in the United States. He became an inspirational figure for later Civil/Human rights activists including Malcolm X who's father Earl Little, a Baptist preacher worked with Marcus Garvey before he was murdered .
Marcus Mosiah Garvey (1887-1940) leader of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, first African-American leader in American history to organize masses of people in a political movement Garvey was born in Jamaica and immigrated to Harlem in 1916 at the age of 28. In his homeland he had been an admirer of Booker T. Washington’s philosophy of self-improvement for people of African descent and had formed the Jamaica Improvement Association. When he arrived in America his ideas expanded and he became a Black Nationalist. For him, Africa was the ancestral home and spiritual base for all people of African descent. His political goal was to take Africa back from European domination and build a free and United Black Africa. He advocated the Back-to-Africa Movement and organized a shipping company called the Black Star Line which was part of his program to conduct international trade between black Africans and the rest of the world in order to “uplift the race” and eventually return to Africa. Garvey studied all of the literature he could find on African history and culture and decided to launch the Universal Negro Improvement Association with the goal of unifying “all the Negro peoples of the world into one great body and to establish a country and government absolutely on their own”. The motto of the U.N.I.A. was “One God! One Aim! One Destiny.” more http://www.marcusgarvey.com/pages/bio
