The Prophet & Africa’s First President

The Prophet & Africa’s First President

Author: Sankofa Aya

“A people without knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.”
 

Marcus Mosiah Garvey

Born in St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica on August 17th, 1887, Marcus Mosiah Garvey was a student of law and
philosophy. He learned from the likes of Duse Ali Muhammad and Toussaint Louverture. He learned
that Carthage and Egypt were Black civilizations who ruled the world for centuries prior to european
colonization.

Garvey was clear on the realities of our existence and our inability to coexist in peace and harmony so long as inequalities persist. His analysis on race assimilation stipulated that the white race will never be prepared to organize in any extent an assimilation with the Black race because in doing so, they  would be committing racial suicide. Assimilation is not profitable for them; it directly impacts their ability to maintain their current position as world leaders. Therefore, Garvey acknowledged and endorsed Black owned initiatives. He knew and understood that in order for the Black race to survive and prevail, it would require creating endemic sustainability that would uplift Blacks “from his low state” of begging and praying to the highest human standards which would lead to our progress and evolution of a higher standard of life, liberty, industrially, educationally, socially and politically. Garvey escaped the assassin’s bullet, but not his prison and his well known tactics of defamation. Garvey died from a stroke on June 10th, 1940, but his teachings continue to enlighten the minds of the Black race around the world.

 

Marcus Mosiah Garvey’s Contributions and Achievements:

1. Advocated Pan-African Nationalism, Black pride and the Black man’s repatriation to Abyssinia

2. Founder and President-General of the Universal Negro Improvement Association  (U.N.I.A.) - 1912. The association had over 6 million members across a minimum of 40 countries

3. Published the Negro World newspaper in several languages as means to elevate and awaken the
sleeping giant - 1918

4. The Black Star Line - 1919
a. A shipping company created to assist in building a free city in Liberia that       would stand against western influences. Ships were also a means for Blacks to repatriate to Africa.

5. Tried his own case - United States of America vs. Marcus Garvey - 1923

6. Paved the way for many, many, African Nationalists and Black Activists to date.

    Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found afreekha.com after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.
