Biography | show moreshow less
Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) known as "the Black Moses", had been the leader of the Harlem Renaissance and was founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association. A proponent of Black pride and racial separation, Garvey had established several businesses, including a steamship company called the Black Star Line. Convicted on mail fraud charges stemming from the sale of the company's stock, he was sentenced to five years in prison in 1925. His sentence was commuted two years later by President Coolidge, but Garvey was immediately deported to Jamaica, where he remained until moving his headquarters to London in 1933 in an unsuccessful attempt to revitalize his movement.
