Marcus Garvey Day is going virtual!
Marcus said, “…look for me in a whirlwind” and he is coming our way so we’re canceling Sunday’s event in person to keep you and our bands safe. Rob Symeonn and Michael Palmer are already here and they will be performing with Good Over Evil Sound and will be streaming to your home.
Online event will feature words by the honorable Marcus Garvey, live performance by Michael Palmer, Rob Symeonn, Link N Chain plus words by a special guest!
About Marcus

Marcus Mosiah Garvey was born Aug. 17, 1887, in St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica, and established the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL) in 1914 in his home country before moving the headquarters to New York.

In 1923, Garvey was convicted of mail fraud in connection to the Black Star Line program he established as a pathway to economic equality for Black people. Garvey was imprisoned and later deported, and his surging movement in America was stalled as he never again returned to the states. The Garvey family maintains that the charges against the leader were trumped up in order to halt any momentum that Garvey gained in the fight for civil rights.
