Description - The Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers by Marcus Garvey

"Africa for the Africans" was the name given in Africa to the black social protest movement led by Jamaican Marcus Mosiah Garvey (1887-1940). Volumes I-VII of the Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers chronicled the Garvey movement that flourished in the United States during the 1920s. Now, the African volumes of this edition (Volumes VIII, IX and X) demonstrate the central role Africans played in the development of the Garvey phenomenon. The African volumes provide an authoritative account of how Africans transformed Garveyism from an external stimulus into an African social movement. They also represent the most extensive collection of documents every gathered on the early African nationalism of the inter-war period. Here is a detailed chronicle of the spread of Garvey's call for African redemption throughout Africa and the repressive colonial responses it engendered. Volume IX documents the establishment of UNIA chapters throughout Africa and presents new evidence linking Garveyism and nascent Namibian nationalism.
