Negro with a Hat

Author: Colin Grant
ISBN 0195367944
The Rise and Fall of Marcus Garvey and His Dream of Mother Africa. An inspiring orator, Garvey captivated audiences with his audacious "Back to Africa" program and his Universal Negro Improvement Association boasted over 1,100 branches in more than forty countries. A decade later, "The Black Moses" was shackled between US marshals and on his way to serve time for mail fraud at the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary. Negro with a Hat tells a dramatic story. Born in poverty in rural Jamaica, Garvey was a man of contradictions: a self-educated, poetry-writing aesthete and unabashed propagandist, an admirer of Lenin, and a dandy. He was a champion of the Harlem Renaissance, publishing Claude McKay and Langston Hughes in his newspaper the Negro World.
