I Marcus Garvey is a play on the life and works of Marcus Garvey told through music and multi media. He was born August 17, 1887 in St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica, and spent his entire life in the service of his people–African people. He was bold; he was uncompromising and he was one of the most powerful orators on record. Garvey emphasized racial pride, his goal was nothing less than the total and complete redemption and liberation of African people around the planet. Arriving in the United States poor and unknown, within four years he became the most talked about black man in the United States and the Caribbean, and perhaps in the world.
