MARCUS GARVEY, HERO fills a long felt need. It is brief & straightforward & simple enough for use by high school students & college freshmen. Yet it incorporates the very latest research into Garvey's life. The author, Tony Martin, is a leading Garvey scholar & author of the definitive RACE FIRST: THE IDEOLOGICAL & ORGANIZATIONAL STRUGGLES OF MARCUS GARVEY & THE UNIVERSAL NEGRO IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION. Garvey stands without equal in the history of the international Black movement in the twentieth century. His Universal Negro Improvement Association, begun in Jamaica in 1914, spread rapidly to over forty countries. Garvey moved to New York in 1916 & from his Harlem headquarters he dominated a movement yet to be equaled in African American history. His impact was indelibly implanted in the history, not only of the United States, but of Central America & the Caribbean, Africa & Europe, Canada & South America & everywhere else that Black communities live. "The strengths of this introductory biography are its readability, its straightforward organization & its comprehensive touching on the major events & major issues in the movement."--Journal of Caribbean History
