Norman Otis Richmond celebrates the great African Internationalist Marcus Garvey on the 100th anniversary of his Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) in Jamaica, which he duplicated in NYC, and which became the largest mass movement of African people in the world.
Richmond traces Garvey's influence and visits in Canada.
Richmond describes Garvey's 22 lessons for new black leadership after his death, but claims that Garvey's most significant contribution was his oratory skills to deliver his message. Garvey founded Negro World, the most read newspaper around the world, and ran The Daily newspaper for three years.
Malcolm X's father distributed Garvey's newspapers, and Malcolm's mother educated her children with them -- planting the seed for the next greatest African American organizer.
