Marcus Garvey and Black Nationalism

In recognition of Black History Month, February 1985, Robert A. Hill examines the life and ideas of Marcus Garvey (1887-1940), the Jamaican black nationalist, educator, and cultural leader. Garvey was a charismatic speaker, a world traveler, and the founder of the Black Star Line, a shipping transport enterprise that he envisioned as an economic basis for the political liberation of black people worldwide.

At the time of this interview, Hill, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1983-84), was professor of history at the University of California, Los Angeles.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
