Marcus Garvey’s selections of texts made for an interesting read. He highlights not just his own beliefs, but the push back he experiences from others for it as well. And yet despite the fact that Garvey’s arguments in the texts provided do talk a decent amount about his experiences and the social structure that exist wtihin America, he does not do the same when it comes to the subject of creation a Nation in Africa. Garvey’s pessimism about African American’s ability to gain any political leverage within America can not be entirely dismissed, yet there still remains the question of why he never bring up these same possibilities when it comes to his planned nation state in Africa.
