Negro With A Hat

Negro With A Hat
Author

This groundbreaking biography captures the full sweep and epic dimensions of Marcus Garvey's life, the dazzling triumphs and the dreary exile.

Author Colin Grant shows Garvey was a man of contradictions: a self-educated, poetry-writing aesthete and unabashed propagandist, an admirer of Lenin, and a dandy given to elaborate public displays. Above all, he was a shrewd promoter whose use of pageantry evoked a lost African civilization and fired the imagination of his followers. 

Negro With a Hat restores Garvey to his place as one of the founders of black nationalism and a key figure of the 20th century.
