As part of our efforts to make accessible various items in our collection holdings, we’ve presented this research guide on highlighting the work and legacy of publisher, entrepreneur, and early Pan-African leader Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA).
Through our five research divisions—Jean Blackwell Hutson Research and Reference Division, Art and Artifacts Division, Moving Image Recorded Sound, Photographs and Prints Division, and the Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division—we illuminate how he immigrated to the United States from Jamaica and created the Harlem branch of the UNIA, a benevolent fraternal organization founded on the principles of economic self-sufficiency and racial pride.
