Marcus Garvey was one of the greatest black leaders we ever had. He said that black people will never be successful depending on whites or other races of people, he said that as black people we must come together and do for self. I’m going to list some of Marcus Garvey’s achievements. 1. Marcus Garvey built factories, where he made black dolls for black kids to play with. 2. He built a hotel. 3. He built a chain of grocery stores. 4. His organization had their own trucking company. 5. He built schools. 6. He built restaurants. 7. His organization had their own printing press. 8. He started 3 newspapers. 9. His main newspaper was called the Negro World, and that newspaper was published in Spanish and French. 10. His organization bought 5 ships and they started practicing international trade and commerce. 11. Marcus Garvey’s organization owned office buildings. 12. They also bought an auditorium in New York, and that’s where he mainly spoke and this place was called Liberty Hall. 13. By 1922 Marcus Garvey organization had 6 million members. 14. They had branches in 40 countries. 15. Marcus Garvey also started his own political party, and he named it The Peoples Political Party. Marcus Garvey did all of that without help from white people or the Government, and he did it with an 8th grade education.

REAL REVOLUTIONARY…THAT’S WHY THEY IMPRISONED HIM AND SHIPPED HIM BACK TO JAMAICA….IF OUR LEADERS AREN’T BEING ARRESTED, THAT JUST MEANS THEY ARE NOT REVOLUTIONARY ENOUGH!!

"There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in
America as an independent press. You know it and I know it.

There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions,
and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in
print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the
paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries
for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to
write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another
job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my
paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth;
to lie outright;
to pervert;
to vilify;
to fawn at the feet of mammon, and
to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.

You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an
independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind
the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we
dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the
property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
