Publisher's Summary

The Jamaican orator and entrepreneur Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr. (1887-1940) preached success to the African diaspora. He believed that attaining economic, cultural, and political success would free African Americans in this life. Identifying integrity of character as the first step toward achievement, Garvey promoted capitalism as the means to establish African Americans as an independent group. He believed that economic success was the quickest route to autonomy and self-reliance and slammed poverty for facilitating immorality and crime: “I would prefer to be honestly wealthy, than miserably poor.” In The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey, he formulated the "black is beautiful" ideal and championed the Back-to-Africa movement.
