Philosophy & Opinions of Marcus Garvey (Paperback)



Marcus Garvey admonishes Africans astray in the diaspora: “You have AFRICA, you are in other  continents and islands of the sea, you are millions upon millions strong. I appeal to you stop being the under-dog and footstool of others, stop complaining, whining and talking about bad luck and misfortune – Shake yourself- get up, start over, overcome the ills around you, you are responsible for what you are, what you want to be, blame no one but yourself, you have the chance, what you want is the will to do and to dare others to stop you. That is why they watch you so carefully … that you may not get away with any progressive ideas which would be a surprise to the world of theirs.”
