Born 1887

You all know how the different West Indians despise each other, how the Jamaican despise the Barbadian and the Barbadian despise the Jamaican and all the other islands hate each other. The UNIA was founded in 1914 after my experience of travel in South America, in Central America, in all the West Indian islands and in Europe, seeing well the need for greater unity amongst the black people of the world."

“Therefore the American Negroes and the West Indian Negroes are one, and they are relics of the great African race which was brought into the Western world and kept here for 400 years. I told them in Harlem that it is my duty to reunite the Negroes of Africa, to make a great nation of black men..." Marcus Garvey

One Creator
