The focus of this course is on the development of Garveyism as a social movement in the early decades of the twentieth century and its impact on contemporary movements for decolonization in the Diaspora and in Africa. The socio‐political practice of the Garvey movement will be examined in order to ascertain its Pan‐ Africanist appeal. Students will be exposed to primary source materials at the National Library of Jamaica, the multi‐volume Marcus Garvey and the UNIA Paper and recent literature on the Garvey movement.
