garvey’s ghost

Garvey was a Jamaican immigrant, who between 1916 and 1921 built the largest black mass movement in world history. The first comprehensive documentary to tell the life story of this controversial leader, the film includes fiery interviews with sons and daughters of “Garveyites” who reveal how revolutionary Garvey’s ideas were to a new generation of African Americans, West Indians and Africans and how he invested hundreds of thousands of black men and women with a new-found sense of racial pride.
