The Back-to-Africa movement, also known as the Colonization movement, originated in the United States in the 19th century and encouraged those of African descent to return to the African homelands of their ancestors. This movement would eventually inspire movements ranging from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement.

The Black Star Line was a shipping line incorporated by Marcus Garvey. The shipping line was supposed to facilitate the transportation of goods and eventually African Americans throughout the African global economy. The name was derived from the White Star Line, whose success Garvey felt he could duplicate, which would become a standard of his Back-to-Africa movement.

The Black Star Line and its successor, the Black Cross Navigation and Trading Company, operated between 1919-22. It stands today as a major symbol for Garvey followers.
