Marcus Garvey was a Jamaican activist and entrepreneur who founded the UNIA and campaigned for a better quality of life for all black people.  The Pan African red black and green colours you see and that form part of the Ghanian flag come from Garvey’s organisation. 

I’ll be doing an episode on Garvey soon but for today I wanted to focus on a quote from him made on February 10th 1925 from an Atlanta prison.
