    Description

    Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican-born Black nationalist and originator of the “Back to Africa” movement during the 1900s, was a passionate and formidable orator and founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association. Garvey went on to become an inspiration for many future civil rights activists.  

    Marcus Garvey: A Biography, by Stephen Johnson provides an in-depth look into the incredible life of this truly remarkable man, his vision for pan-Africanism, and his unrelenting fight for the right of self-determination and self-reliance for the African people.  

    Johnson’s meticulously researched biography paints the complete picture of a controversial figure who stood in the spotlight during the early years of the battle for racial equality. Marcus Garvey went on to become an early pioneer in this struggle; admired by his supporters, respected by his adversaries, and feared by the government. Jamaica honored Marcus Garvey by declaring him its first national hero.  

    Johnson’s work demonstrates how Garvey’s message of Black pride showed in every aspect of his life and continued even after his death. It brilliantly captures the true essence of a man Martin Luther King, Jr., called, “the first man, on a mass scale and level, to give millions of Negroes a sense of dignity and destiny, and make the Negro feel that he was somebody”.  

    Stephen Johnson’s work, Marcus Garvey: A Biography is an essential and fascinating listen for anyone interested in African American history or the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

    Quick Summary of His Life

    This is a quick summary of Marcus Garvey's life, very straight to the point without a whole lot of detail. After reading this, I've noticed how important it is to have people of African decent narrating on topics for the culture. I did listen to the preview of the book, but never realized how much I would have preferred listening to this by a black narrator. The story would have resonated with me a little better. Overall, it's a good summary to quickly learn about his life.

    A real inspiration for the black masses.

    The man was light years ahead of his time. Bold, uncompromising a true leader who introduced a sense of pride we still struggle to hold on to, to this very day.

    A good book,but...

    This was a good book to listen to but I feel like something is missing.I will continue to do research on Mr. Garvey. The person reading had a pleasant sounding voice.

    Over All a Great Introduction

    I’ve always wondered about Marcus Garvey. I think this book was a good intro and is inspiring me to seek more. I especially appreciate that they told the good and the bad.

    I liked it, but wanted more!

    Very interesting biography, but much too short. I like brevity, but would have liked a deeper dive into this influential man. I liked that the bio did not shrink from all the controversies. Great voice artist.
