5 Things Every Black Person Should Know About Marcus Garvey



He Inspired the Birth of Many Nations

Marcus Garvey’s work and philosophy has been so transformational, that it is directly responsible for many African nations’ independence from European colonizers. Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania and most of the CARICOM member states can attribute their independence, in part, to the teachings of Marcus Garvey. According to blackbusinessnetwork.com: “Inspired by his ideas, over 30 African countries have declared their freedom, and many sport Mr. Garvey’s red, black and green colors in their flag,” this includes Ghana, the first sub-Saharan nation to gain independence, which honors Marcus Garvey with the black star in its flag.
