"Africa for the Africans" was the name given to the extraordinary movement led by Jamaican Marcus Mosiah Garvey (1887-1940). Volumes I-VII of the Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers chronicled the Garvey movement that flourished in the United States during the 1920s. Now, the long-awaited African volumes of this edition demonstrate clearly the central role Africans played in the development of the Garvey phenomenon. The African volumes provide the first authoritative account of how Africans transformed Garveyism into an African social movement. The most extensive collection of documents ever gathered on the early African nationalism of the interwar period, Volume X provides a detailed chronicle of the spread of Garvey's call for African redemption throughout Africa.

Black Separatism and Social Reality

Author: Raymond L. Hall

Genre: Political Science

Black Separatism and Social Reality: Rhetoric and Reason deals with the contemporary debate over black separatism in America. It brings together for the first time many of the perspectives, ideas, orientations, and ideologies that all directly or indirectly address the question of black separatism — pro and con — from the vantage point of their own realities. It raises fundamental issues that have recurred throughout the last century and continue unabated today, such as whether black Americans should seek their political destiny apart from white Americans, or whether economic growth within the black community can eventually lead to true ""black power."" This book is comprised of 31 chapters and begins with a historical overview and social reality of black separatism in America, how and why black separatist movements emerge and why separatism appeals to some individuals and not to others. The next section explores the similarities of white racist assumptions and black separatism as well as the arguments for and against separatism. The prospects of black separatism are analyzed, along with Pan-Africanism and black studies. A comprehensive review of the history of separatist thought and a bibliography concerning the relation of Afro-Americans with Africa are presented. The possibility of a violent confrontation between whites and blacks is also considered. Finally, the book ponders the question of whether there is a need for a distinct, ""black"" social science. This monograph will appeal to sociologists, social scientists, political scientists, politicians, blacks, and scholars of black studies.

Dieses Buch liefert als bisher einzige Publikation dieser Art in deutscher Sprache, eine biographische Gesamtdarstellung ber das Leben und Schaffen des Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Besondere Schwerpunkte bilden hierbei die wichtigsten Lebensstationen Garveys, sein Weltbild, seine Philosophie sowie eine ausf hrliche Betrachtung von Garveys Zeit in den USA 1916-1927, die dortigen Geschehnisse rund um die von ihm gegr ndeten Unternehmen bzw. Organisationen UNIA und Black Star Line. Ein weiterer Aspekt ist Garveys mit aller H rte gef hrter Kampf gegen seine Feinde bzw. Konkurrenten. Dieser betrifft vor allem Garveys komplexes Verh ltnis zur NAACP und W.E.B. DuBois, aber auch die National Urban League und andere elit re afroamerikanische Organisationen, die aufstrebenden Gewerkschaften, feindlich gesinnte Journalisten und deren Zeitungen und die Vereinigten Staaten als Ankl ger im Aufsehen erregenden Betrugsprozess gegen Garveys "Black Star Line." Anhand von Beispielen aus seiner wichtigsten Publikation, der "Negro World," wird des weiteren Garveys journalistischer Stil durchleuchtet, um wichtige R ckschl sse auf das Ph nomen Garvey ziehen zu k nnen. Auf die umstrittene Beziehung Garveys zum Ku Klux Klan und dessen Anf hrer Clarke wird ebenso eingegangen, wie auf au enpolitischen Aktionen der UNIA im Bezug auf Garveys "Back to Africa"- Kampagne und Garveys Versuche, in Liberia Fu zu fassen. Schlie lich wird auf die Zeit nach Garveys Deportation aus den USA bis zu seinem Tode 1940 im Londoner Exil geblickt. Im letzten Abschnitt gibt der Autor einen berblick ber das Weiterbestehen der UNIA nach Garveys Tod bis in die heutige Zeit, soweit dies anhand der sp rlichen Quellen m glich ist und widmet sich in einem pers nlichen Schlussstatement noch einmal explizit Garveys Philosophie und Weltbild und dessen Bedeutung f r die afroamerikanische Geschichtsschreibung.

Finalist, 2016 Ralph Waldo Emerson Award One of Bustle's Books For Your Civil Disobedience Reading List Dissent: The History of an American Idea examines the key role dissent has played in shaping the United States. It focuses on those who, from colonial days to the present, dissented against the ruling paradigm of their time: from the Puritan Anne Hutchinson and Native American chief Powhatan in the seventeenth century, to the Occupy and Tea Party movements in the twenty-first century. The emphasis is on the way Americans, celebrated figures and anonymous ordinary citizens, responded to what they saw as the injustices that prevented them from fully experiencing their vision of America. At its founding the United States committed itself to lofty ideals. When the promise of those ideals was not fully realized by all Americans, many protested and demanded that the United States live up to its promise. Women fought for equal rights; abolitionists sought to destroy slavery; workers organized unions; Indians resisted white encroachment on their land; radicals angrily demanded an end to the dominance of the moneyed interests; civil rights protestors marched to end segregation; antiwar activists took to the streets to protest the nation’s wars; and reactionaries, conservatives, and traditionalists in each decade struggled to turn back the clock to a simpler, more secure time. Some dissenters are celebrated heroes of American history, while others are ordinary people: frequently overlooked, but whose stories show that change is often accomplished through grassroots activism. The United States is a nation founded on the promise and power of dissent. In this stunningly comprehensive volume, Ralph Young shows us its history.
