Marcus Garvey: Black Nationalist (Notable Americans) by Peggy Caravantes

While growing up in Jamaica, Marcus Garvey decided he and other black people had to take charge of their own lives before conditions would improve. After founding the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), he moved to New York where he worked toward organizing African descendants from all over the world. UNIA encouraged racial pride and financial independence, as well as the establishment of a homeland in Africa. To help reach these goals, Garvey raised money to launch a shipping company and other ventures. His lack of experience crippled these efforts, however. The businesses were soon bankrupt and Garvey was arrested and convicted of mail fraud. After serving a short prison sentence, he was deported from the United States and his organization fell apart. Although he was not successful in his immediate goals, Marcus Garvey was an early advocate of ethnic pride and of black nationalism and had a powerful impact on the civil rights movement in the United States.
