The Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association papers( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa for the Africans" was the name given in Africa to the extraordinary 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 long-awaited African volumes of this edition (Volumes VIII and IX and a forthcoming Volume X) demonstrate clearly the central role Africans played in the development of the Garvey phenomenon. The African volumes provide the first 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 ever 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 VIII begins in 1917 with the little-known story of the Pan-African commercial schemes that preceded Garveyism and charts the early African reactions to the UNIA. Volume IX continues the story, documenting the establishment of UNIA chapters throughout Africa and presenting new evidence linking Garveyism and nascent Namibian nationalism

One God, one aim, one destiny : African Nova Scotians in Cape Breton by Joan Weeks( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of African settlement in Cape Breton was barely documented and on the verge of being lost. Then, in 2006, the African Nova Scotian community in Glace Bay decided to restore its derelict Universal Negro Improvement Association Hall. As part of that project, the community created a museum to recognize and celebrate the history of Blacks in Cape Breton." "Because so little is known about that history, the UNIA Cultural Museum decided to publish its research. With the help of the Centre for Cape Breton Studies at Cape Breton University and the Cape Breton County Economic Development Authority, this book was born. It begins with slaves and ends with a Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia. It tells stories that were all but lost from living memory, like the shocking Glace Bay race riot of 1918. Profits from this publication will be used to help operate the UNIA Cultural Museum."--Jacket
