Ula Yvette Taylor
Best price for this book: $ 29.99
Born in Jamaica, Amy Jacques moved in 1917 to Harlem, where she became involved in the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), the largest Pan-African organization of its time. She served as the private secretary of UNIA leader Marcus Garvey; in 1922, they married. Soon after, she began to give speeches and to publish editorials urging black women to participate in the Pan-African movement and addressing issues that affected people of African descent across the globe. After her husband's death in 1940, Jacques Garvey emerged as a gifted organizer for the Pan-African cause. Although she faced considerable male chauvinism, she persisted in creating a distinctive feminist voice within the movement. In her final decades, Jacques Garvey constructed a thriving network of Pan-African contacts, including Nnamdi Azikiwe, Kwame Nkrumah, George Padmore, and W. E. B. Du Bois.
Taylor examines the many roles Jacques Garvey played throughout her life, as feminist, black nationalist, journalist, daughter, mother, and wife. Tracing her political and intellectual evolution, the book illuminates the leadership and enduring influence of this remarkable activist.

"Look for Me All Around You": Anglophone Caribbean Immigrants in the Harlem Renaissance (African American Life Series)
Best price for this book: $ 36.89
Interdisciplinary in scope, this anthology redresses the undue neglect of Anglophone Caribbeans-almost 25 percent of the Black population in Harlem in 1920-and their pivotal role in the literary, cultural, and political events shaping the Harlem Renaissance. The poetry, fiction, drama, and essays included explore a variety of issues, such as the increasing emphasis on race and image building, the development of a Black aesthetic, progressive politics, and the struggle to define the status of Blacks in America. Both the literary and political works show the spirit of the New Negro, one emphasizing racial pride and aesthetic consciousness.
Examined closely are those Black and Carribean American figures involved in the Black nationalism movement, socialist groups, and trade unions, including such prominent figures as Marcus Garvey and his two wives, Amy Ashwood and Amy Jacques Garvey, Hubert Harrison, W. A. Domingo, and Frank Crosswaith. Also explored are the developing communist movements as manifested in the writings of Cyril Briggs, Richard B. Moore, Otto Huiswoud, and George Padmore. Essays review the crucial literary contributions of Claude McKay, Eric Walrond, and dramatist Eulalie Spence, as well as historians Arthur Schomburg and J. A. Rogers. This anthology of writers, with accompanying discussions about their works placed in the context of their own time, will be of interest to anyone examining the Harlem Renaissance and the larger Black and Caribbean contribution to cultural and political thinking.
Philosophy & Opinions Of Marcus Garvey: Africa For The Africans Volume 1 & 2

“YOU HAVE AFRICA, you are in other continents and islands of the sea, you are millions upon millions strong, I appeal to you stop being the under-dogs and footstools of others, stop complaining, whining and talking about bad luck and misfortune - Shake yourself - get up start over, overcome the ills around you, you are responsible for what you are, what you want to be, blame no one but yourself, you have the chance, what you want is the will to do, and to dare others to stop you. That is why they watch you so carefully - that you may not get away with any progressive ideas which would be a surprise to the world of theirs.”
This is Garvey’s legacy which he left for the African world. As Garvey’s spiritual children, let us invoke his dauntless spirit of resistance and struggle, by paying gratifying respect and homage to him and our great progressive African ancestors, by accepting the challenge to liberate from mental and industrial slavery the down-pressed and down-trodden Africans wherever they reside.
