Jamaica Rock 08.16.12 - Marcus Garvey Tribute

Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr., born August 17, 1887, was a Jamaican political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and orator who was a staunch proponent of the Black nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements, to which end he founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League. He founded the Black Star Line, part of the Back-to-Africa movement, which promoted the return of the African diaspora to their ancestral lands. This show is a tribute to him, filled with songs devoted to him and Africa out of the mouths and hearts of Jamaican artists and musicians.
