Remembering Marcus Garvey and Why We Should Relaunch the Liberia Program

Last month, I was walking through Harlem, and, suddenly, I saw a Starbucks. I walked in, and all around me stood white, middle class, New Yorkers. All I could think to myself was that that is not the Harlem I remember. All I could think was that America is not the place for negroes.

While physical slavery ended over one hundred fifty years ago, enslavement of black people still exists today; however, now, it is more of an enslavement of black culture. White people’s culture has slowly been cutting away at black culture, through cultural appropriation and gentrification. This is a fact, and Harlem is proof.

I remember that night, after seeing the Starbucks, the second I got back to my apartment, I went to my library, and immediately pulled out the “Selected Writings and Speeches of Marcus Garvey”.

Marcus Garvey was a negroe activist in the early 20th century. He was a Jamaican man, who founded the Universal Negroe Improvement Association, and promoted the idea of pan-africanism.

One of Garvey’s many goals was to create a movement which would drive blacks back to Africa, where they could reclaim their homeland. Garvey started the Liberia Program, which was an attempt to take over Liberia, and create a homeland for the American negroe; however, it was unsuccessful due to European interference.

After seeing that Starbucks in Harlem, I have now decided to do everything that I can to restart that Black Zionist Movement. My plan is to restart this movement, and gather enough followers, and then move to Liberia, and start a political party.

If you are a negroe, understand that America has never been the place for us, and help me and my new movement. Together, we shall create an African-American nation state!
