Does the library have materials, speeches, and writings by the Jamaican entrepreneur, publisher, and orator Marcus Garvey?

Marcus GarveyWe have primary and secondary sources on figures like Marcus Garvey, proponent of Black Nationalism and Pan Africanism, in the History and Social Sciences Department.

Search the catalog with the subject heading Garvey, Marcus, 1887-1940 and you will find a large collection of bibliographic materials and history books; search the author field with Garvey, Marcus, 1887-1940, and a collection of his writings, poetry and speeches can be browsed.

The library also has a reference set of the papers of his organization, the Universal Negro Improvement Association.

    Garvey was a lot more than just an entrepreneur, publisher, and orator. He was a towering 20th century political and social leader who sought to link the causes of all people of color into one worldwide movement. He even came here, to Dallas, on Juneteenth, 1922 and spoke at the Pythian Temple, still standing in Deep Ellum.

      John – Thank you for your comment. It’s difficult to do justice to Garvey’s legacy in a short reference question. Our goal is to make people want to learn more. Comments like yours help get poeple interested. Thanks, again!
