The Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers, Vol. 11, The Caribbean Diaspora, 1910-1920

Vol. XI of the multivolume “Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers” documents the impact and spread of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) and African Communities League, the organization founded by Marcus Garvey in 1914 and led by him until his death in 1940. Volume XI is the first to focus on the Caribbean, where the UNIA was represented by more than 170 divisions and chapters. Revealing the connections between the major African-American Social movement of the interwar era and the struggles of the Caribbean people for self-determination and independence, this volume includes letters, speeches, and writings of Caribbean Garveyites and this opponents, as well as writings and speeches by Garvey, newspaper articles, colonial correspondence and memoranda, and government investigative records.
