The Philosophy & Opinions of Marcus Garvey - Amy Jacques Garvey
The Philosophy and Opinions, first published in two volumes in 1923 and 1925 quickly became a celebrated apologia for the leader of the largest Pan-African mass movement of all time.
"Look for me in the whirlwind or the storm, look for me all around you, for with God's grace, I shall come and bring with me countless millions of black slaves who have died in America and the West Indies and the millions in Africa to aid you in the fight for Liberty, Freedom, and Life. The civilization of today is gone drunk and crazy with its power and by such it seeks through injustice, fraud and lies to crush the unfortunate. But if I am apparently crushed by the system of influence and misdirected power, my cause shall rise again to plague the conscience of the corrupt. For this I am satisfied, and for you, I repeat, I am to suffer and even die. Again, I say, cheer up, for better days are ahead. I shall write the history that will inspire the millions that are coming and leave the posterity of our enemies to reckon with the hosts for the deeds of their fathers." - Marcus Garvey *1923 & 1925, 2022. 592 pgs.
