The Life Of Marcus Garvey Shared By His Son Dr. Julius GarveyPublished Mar 26, 2009
Educational Management Associates, has been given the honor of arranging speaking engagements starting the month of May 2009, for Dr. Julius Garvey, the son of the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association of 1914.
Dr. Julius Garvey will be available for lectures to discuss the life of one of our most revered and greatest leaders of the Pan-African movement in America, Marcus Mosiah Garvey.
"Where did the name of the organization come from? It was while speaking to a West Indian Negro who was a passenger with me from Southampton, who was returning home to the West Indies from Basutoland with his Basuto wife, that I further learned of the horrors of native life in Africa. He related to me in conversation such horrible and pitiable tales that my heart bled within me. Retiring from the conversation to my cabin, all day and the following night I pondered over the subject matter of that conversation, and at midnight, lying flat on my back, the vision and thought came to me that I should name the organization the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities (Imperial) League. Such a name I thought would embrace the purpose of all black humanity. Thus to the world a name was born, a movement created, and a man became known." Marcus Mosiah Garvey.
If your organization would like to have him share an important part of African American history, contact: Mr. Okpara Nosakhere at: (816) 977-0217 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This would be an excellent opportunity to support your fund raising efforts. Peace!
