Ghana With the leadership of Kwame Nkrumah, the country of Ghana declared it's independence from the United Kingdom in 1957. Nkrumah was an avid reader of Marcus Garvey's writings and teachings. Upon declaring independence, Ghana created its own flag, utilizing Garvey's symbols, including the red, black and green colors as well as the black star (as in Garvey's Black Star Line). In Ghana's flag, red represents the blood that was shed towards independence, the gold represents the mineral wealth of Ghana, the green symbolizes the rich agriculture, and the black star is the symbol of African emancipation, a shining tribute to the inspiration of Marcus Garvey. Kwame Nkrumah named the national shipping line of Ghana the Black Star Line in honor of Garvey. Nkrumah also named the national soccer team the Black Stars as well. A bust of Marcus Garvey is also on display at a park in the central region in Ghana.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey (1887-1940) leader of the Universal *** Improvement Association, first African-American leader in American history to organize masses of people in a political movement. Garvey was born in Jamaica and immigrated to Harlem in 1916 at the age of 28. In his homeland he had been an admirer of Booker T. Washington's philosophy of self-improvement for people of African descent and had formed the Jamaica Improvement Association. When he arrived in America his ideas expanded and he became a Black Nationalist. For him, Africa was the ancestral home and spiritual base for all people of African descent. His political goal was to take Africa back from European domination and build a free and United Black Africa. He advocated the Back-to-Africa Movement and organized a shipping company called the Black Star Line which was part of his program to conduct international trade between black Africans and the rest of the world in order to "uplift the race" and eventually return to Africa. Garvey studied . ...
NDC under Rawlings gave GIHOC’s Abosso Glass Factory to the Togolese Opposition Leader, Gilchrist Olympio, a Rawlings crony of ndc. West African Mills and GIHOC Electronics were sold to Kofi Kludjeson, another ndc crony. Prestea and Tarkwa Goldfields were each sold for $3 million. Nsawam canary was sold to Caridem and if you lift the veil of incorporation, you will see Nana Konadu as the owner. In 1981, when Rawlings came to power, Ghana’s Shipping Line, the Black Star Line, had 14 vessels. These were ships that belonged to the Republic of Ghana. By the time Rawlings left power he had shut down the Black Star Line which Nkrumah had built, sold all of the 14 vessels, kept the purse and rendered our fellow citizens who worked as seamen jobless!
People keep writing WE don't come together and I say that is just not true. WE do. and massa keeps destroying them and putting puppets in their place. Marcus Garvey and the UAM were building a powerful international mass movement, Garvey summoned the First Convention in New York in 1920, the name Ethiopia was adopted as the focal point of identity for blacks the world over and there were demands in the Declaration of Rights of the *** Peoples of the World. WHAT HAPPENED?? . On January 12, 1922, the FBI under J. Edgar Hoover arrested Garvey of mail fraud and stock irregularities related to the Black Star Line. J. Edgar Hoover was very eager to destroy all black radicals; he had strong intentions of terminating Marcus Garvey’s movement. At first, he was looking to charge Garvey with criminal activity, but could only accuse him of mail fraud. Hoover sent secret agents into Garvey’s gatherings to investigate his actions. Hoover went as far as trying to deny Garvey a visa when he was coming back to Unite . ...
Today in African-American History: 1865: The first African American major in the United States Army is a physician, Dr. Martin Robinson Delany. 1894: Congress repeals the Enforcement Act, which makes it easier for some states to disenfranchise African American voters. 1925: Marcus Garvey is sent to federal prison in Atlanta, Georgia for mail fraud in connection with the sale of stock in his Black Star Line. His prosecution was vigorously advocated by several prominent African American leaders, including Robert Sengstacke Abbott and others. Garvey was railroaded because of the power he had amassed over the African American population of America. 1944: Harry S. McAlpin of the "Daily World" in Atlanta, Georgia, is the first African American journalist accredited to attend White House press conferences. 1968: Gary Coleman is born in Zion, Ohio.

Sometime in November 1919, the Bureau of Investigation (BOI, the precursor to the FBI) launched an investigation into the activities of Garvey and the UNIA. Although initial efforts by the BOI were to find grounds upon which to deport Garvey as “an undesirable alien”, a charge of mail fraud was brought against him in connection with stock sales of the Black Star Line after the US Post Office and the Attorney General joined the investigation. Of the four Black Star Line officers charged in connection with the enterprise, only Garvey was found guilty of using the mail service to defraud. His supporters called the trial fraudulent: postal employees lied, while other prosecution witnesses clearly perjured themselves. When the trial ended on June 23, 1923, Garvey had been sentenced to five years in prison. He initially spent three months in the Tombs Jail (Manhattan Detention Center) awaiting approval of bail for his appeal.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr., ONH (17 August 1887 – 10 June 1940),[1] was a Jamaican political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and orator who was a staunch proponent of the Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements, to which end he founded the Universal *** Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL).[2] He founded the Black Star Line, part of the Back-to-Africa movement, which promoted the return of the African diaspora to their ancestral lands. Prior to the twentieth century, leaders such as Prince Hall, Martin Delany, Edward Wilmot Blyden, and Henry Highland Garnet advocated the involvement of the African diaspora in African affairs. Garvey was unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement and economic empowerment focusing on Africa known as Garveyism.[2] Promoted by the UNIA as a movement of African Redemption, Garveyism would eventually inspire others, ranging from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement (which proclaims .. ...
Right from wrong. Stuck contemplating the gray matter because this time it wasn't necessarily Black vs. "purely" White.. That being said, I'm growing ever so inspired to get the Black Star Line idea of Garvey's back running in order to establish a system based on a level foundation for "US". Shame on the American In-Justice system, however take a look at our community and how our 'larger than life" rappers/ "reality" tv stars/role models portray us. We have to clean up our community and stop promoting and celebrating an image and lifestyle that in the end we are labeled by, unjustly held accountable for, and results in our demise. This isn't the place the North Star led Harriet Tubman to, this isn't what Fredrick Douglass wrote about, this isn't the dream Martin had. Wake Up.

What if the black star line succeeded
Radical Black Reading: Summer 2013 By THE PUBLIC ARCHIVE | Published: JULY 4, 2013 The New York Times’ dismissive, error-strewn obituary of Una G. Mulzac, the late proprietor of Harlem’s now-closed Liberation Books, cast her as a cantankerous crank-pot holding anachronistic political beliefs. Yet for many people, folk like Mulzac were historians, vernacular archivists, and living repositories of pan-African memory. Places like Liberation Books – alongside San Francisco’s endangered Marcus Books, Toronto’s long-shuttered Third World Books & Crafts, and a host of other stores – doubled as public libraries, informal classrooms, and sites of pilgrimage. The daughter of Hugh Mulzac, author of A Star to Steer By and a shipmate on Marcus Garvey’s Black Star Line, Mulzac was an activist in her own right and through Liberation Books, she staked a claim for bookselling as a political act. Unfortunately, it’s a claim that is losing ground as fast as independent Black bookstores have been closing. Whi ...
Kwame Nkrumah studied Karl Marx and Nikolai Lenin but the third personality who appeared to have had much impact on him was Marcus Garvey. Marcus Garvey had a message for the person who was concerned with the liberation of Africa. He wanted “Africa for Africans” and he asserted emphatically that blackness was never a badge of inferiority but that Africa had a history of past achievements which black people all over could take pride in. In fact, Garvey’s tremendous influence on Nkrumah was later reflected in the fact that when Nkrumah became President of Ghana eventually, he named the national shipping line as the Black Star Line, the same name Garvey had given to his shipping line. He named the independence square, the Black Star Square and the Black Star was placed in the centre of the National Flag as the lode star of African Unity. Again, Nkrumah’s Convention Peoples Party’s motto “Forward Ever, Backward Never” was also perhaps taken from Garvey who had written: “The *** stands at the . ...

I don't have any right now. But its simple. Black Stars, in honor of Marcus Garvey's 'Black Star Line'
Black History: Marcus Garvey (1887-1940) Ostentatious, extravagant and a great self-publicist, Jamaican-born Marcus Garvey, founder of the Universal *** Improvement Association, arrived in New York in 1916. Basing himself in Harlem, Garvey declared that Black Is Beautiful but alienated those of mixed race or whose skin was not so dark by declaring that the best blacks were the blackest blacks. He campaigned for the repatriation of African Americans to Africa, his Back to Africa campaign, extolling the virtues of the continent, despite never having stepped foot on it. Founder of the newspaper, *** World, and the shipping line, Black Star Line, Garvey's flamboyancy was criticised by the more middle-class black leaders such as W. E. B. Du Bois. Garvey's business practices were sometimes a little suspect and in 1923 he was convicted of attempted fraud and sentenced to four years, a sentence commuted after two by President Coolidge. He was deported back to Jamaica but finished his days living in obscurity ...
It is Black/African American History Month~ Marcus Mosiah Garvey 1887-1940 FOUNDER UNIVERSAL *** IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION He was born in St Ann Parish, Jamaica. Marcus Garvey came to the United States in 1916 to raise money to build a school similar to Tuskegee Institute. Garvey was a great public speaker, some would say the best of his kind during his time. As he traveled across the United States, he witnessed injustices and spoke on them openly and honestly. Bold and fearless, he did several things that other leaders within the black community dared not to. One of the things he did was to meet, with a high ranking white supremacist in 1922, to interview and find out the views of the Africans in the Diaspora. Some black leaders heard about it and claimed him to be the worse enemy that blacks could have. He raised enough money, to buy used ships which he named the Black Star Line. The problem was he had associates who had no idea how to repair and get these vessels running properly or budget for the ...
Marcus Mosiah Garvey stands out in history as one of the greatest black leaders of all time. In the 1930s he preached a message of black self empowerment, and started the 'Back to Africa' movement, which called for all black people of the Diaspora to return to their ancestral African home, and more specifically Ethiopia. He taught self reliance 'at home and abroad' and promoted a 'back to Africa' consciousness, awakening black pride and criticising the 'white' colonial view of the world which was causing black people to feel shame for their African heritage. I n 1914 he set up an organisation called the Universal *** Improvement Association (UNIA), which was the biggest black organisation the world had ever seen and which mobilised black activism across the globe and spoke out against economic exploitation and cultural denigration. The One of the biggest ventures that Garvey is remembered for today was setting up a steamship company to buy ships and do business. It was called the Black Star Line and Ga .. ...

Black American History The Year 1919 - Event Harlem Renaissance Begins Harlem Renaissance A period of almost fifteen years when some of the most important and prolific writers, artists and musicians such as Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, and Eugene O'Neill, to name a few, emerged in the African-American community and took up residence in New York's Harlem district. Other Notable Events: Marcus Garvey (1887 - 1940) an entrepreneur, journalist and proponent of Black Nationalism, encourages Black Americans to return to their African homeland and establishes the Black Star Line, a fleet of Black owned steamships that serviced the Caribbean Islands, America, and Africa. W.E.B. DuBois organizes the first Pan-African Congress in Paris, France.

Marcus Garvey: When Marcus Garvey was developing the UNIA and his Black Star Line, he had no ideal of the different kinds of support he would get. Gangsters like Casper Holstein gave money to the cause, but so did *** Chi Minh, future leader of the communist Vietnam. In fact, according to Yuri Kochiyama, who knew Minh personally and hung out with him in Harlem during that time, It was Garvey's speech's that inspired Minh., who would later lead Vietnam to independence. Even Mao Tse Tung, leader of communist China, voiced his support for Garvey and his agenda for Black Power. ( Yuri Kochiyama, by the way, was a Japenese human rights activist who had joined Malcolm X's OAAU. She was the woman who held Malcolm as he died at the Audobon Ballroom. In 1977, Kochiyama joined the group of Puerto Ricans that took over the Statue of Liberty to draw to the struggle for Puerto Rican independence.)
I think we should've took Marcus Garvey's suggestion and followed the Black Star Line route.

It was a night of silence that was once pitched black There came the moon with the light brought back And stars that twinkle in the night-shade sky Forming the universe above the greater high.     I was just staring every single of it. Just outside staring while on my seat. There came I saw a long line of light That etched the dark sky with a line of sight.     Something so strange happened so sudden As if the light become brighter and widen. I started hearing noises uproaring, that the star I saw was quickly approaching     Without hesitation I left myself on where I sat and ran as fast without looking back I seek refuge inside our wooden door And peeked at my window shaken at my core.     I patiently waited for safety of alaster As minutes turned to seconds from disaster Hit the ground upon impact then came a quake As the star have fallen in withmost mistake.     I stepped out of the house from the destruction it made The flames that brandished a fiery blue shade The earth splintered and crumb ...
New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Water Dispenser Low Price Best Customer Review for New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Water Dispenser total price paid: 71.85 Hello. Although I been purchaseing products for well over decade from Amazon, I never written a review for Amazon before.. till now. Just an awful product. This is a very cheaply made, badly engineered and awful quality control for such simple device costing so much for what it is. As soon as I set this up, it sprung a leak from the spoket that connects to main body of the dispenser. I tightened the plastic nut that holds the spigot to the stainless steel reservoir as much as I can to stop the leak. Apparently you can't...The provided rubber gasket(washer) that's designed to prevent leak is "not soft enough" to do its intended job, so it's letting water out about drop per second. Also, because there isn't any built in "stopper/blocker", if you happen to even just tap the spigot accidently, spigot gets loose and water is leaking everywhere. This is a c . ...

If u do not know who Marcus Garvey is... Then u dont know one of the most ambitious and commited men, whose sole goal was the betterment of his race... Long Live Marcus Mosiah Garvey. UNIA!!! Black Star Line..
I love it when older generations claim that our struggles are invalid and our voices unheard. What generation in the HISTORY of this country has fought so vehemently for uplifting of the poor, for giving voice to reason, and finally screaming a resounding "NO!!" to the centuries old machine of violence that plagues our nation to this very day? There is no drug war, only wars, and drugs, and people caught in the middle. So I apologize to the Old Guard and the Ole Boys' Club. We will NOT start a progressive party, for we are progressive people. We will NOT start a Black Star Line, for we have learned that injustice has no color. We will forget the parties, and the politics of the past and embrace a new future, a future inspired by love, that embraces passion and effort and genius in its many shapes and forms. In other news: Still having a good day.

hey were going to find some way of getting rid of Garvey because they feared his influence," Kornweibel says of Hoover and his government colleagues. "They feared the hundreds of thousands, the masses of blacks under his influence. Garvey rejected America, and they could no more agree to and accept a militant rejection of America by blacks than they could accept a militant demand for full inclusion by blacks." Hoover's determination led him to take extreme measures to counter Garvey's growing influence. According to historian Winston James, "They placed spies in the U.N.I.A. They sabotaged the Black Star Line. The engines... of the ships were actually damaged by foreign matter being thrown into the fuel."
Happy Birthday To Marcus "Mosiah" Garvey, the Father of the Pan-African Movement and the most successful Black Leader to date, with established entities like the UNIA/ACL, The Black Star Line, and many other establishments such as publishing companies, black doll making businesses, stores, etc. I am proud to be a graduate of the UNIA/ACL Pan-African Federation Organization (PAFO) Professors Certification Program sponsored in cooperation with the Ivy League University of Pensylvania Founded by Redman Battle, the Former President General of the UNIA/ACL.

We came out of collective societies where we did not need to be told to look out for each other. We just did so. We developed in a society where poverty and crime were rare because no one had to resort to stealing to get the necessities. We have forgotten the social structure of our societies. We have forgotten how we ran things because most of us don’t know about the period of history when we did run things. What would happen if these black millionaires decided to think like Marcus Garvey? If Oprah wanted she could start a Black Star Line and she wouldn’t have to raise a single donation. If Usain Bolt understood the ideas of Booker T. Washington or Thomas Sankara, he wouldn’t be promoting Puma. He would be promoting locally made Jamaican shoes. Same with JeBron James and Nike. When our celebrities earn all of this money, they think as individuals. We need to be thinking as a nation.
