Marcus Garvey

To all our readers, subscribers and supporters, we have been asked by our friend, W.B. Garvey, descendant of Marcus Mosiah Garvey to circulate the following petition initiated by Garvey’s son, Dr. Julius Garvey, Marcus Garvey’s son, forwarded to him from Liberty Hall in Jamaica, “asking for people to add their support to the efforts seeking a posthumous presidential pardon for Marcus Garvey from President Obama. The text of Dr. Garvey’s letter is below, and we attached the draft letter (*see at the end of post below) which was suggested by him, slightly modified by W.B. which you may use as a template. As noted, he asks that letters in support be sent to Melissa Chastang at the law firm of Akin Gump in Washington D.C.  

According to W. B. Dr. Garvey will be speaking at a news conference in Washington D.C. this coming Wednesday to gain support for this effort before President Obama leaves office. “While posthumous pardons are rare, they are not completely unknown,” said W.B., “and now is the time to add our voices to those in support.” We are in complete support of this petition to exonerate the late Marcus Mosiah Garvey and lift all blot of shame from his name and legacy. Please read carefully the following letter by Dr. Julius Garvey.

While we are on the subject of writers of our days as The Silver People of Panama, we are excited about two new books.  They were both written by authors of Westindian descent who give a precious view of the Panama of our forefathers’ era and fill in more gaps in our collective memory about who and what we really are.
