In compiling this book, Mrs. Garvey has succeeded in revealing the true mindset of one of the greatest Black leaders of the 20th century. By presenting Marcus Garvey's actual letters, speeches and writings, we are granted the privilege of reading HIS OWN WORDS, instead of yet another author's interpretation. Additionally, I was very pleased that the book explained the actions of those who conspired to thwart Garvey's efforts (many of whom he actually mentions by name) and the conditions that effectuated his eventual deportation. I found this writing especially useful in understanding Garvey's true feelings regarding the N.A.A.C.P. and W.E.B. DuBois, as well as his views on racism, Pan-Africanism, and how peoples of all races can co-exist in peace. An absolute MUST READ for any student of the Great Marcus Garvey, and his lifelong effort to improve the conditions of Black people around the world!
