“You can be educated in soul, vision and feeling, as well as in mind. To see your enemy and know him is a part of the complete education of man. [...] Intelligence rules the world, ignorance carries the burden.”
“If you haven’t confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.”
“Chance has never yet satisfied the hope of a suffering people. Action, self-reliance, the vision of self and the future have been the only means by which the oppressed have seen and realized the light of their own freedom.”
“All of us may not live to see the higher accomplishment of an African Empire - so strong and powerful, as to compel the respect of mankind, but we in our life-time can so work and act as to make the dream a possibility within another generation.”
While progress has been made - thanks to such Pan African movements and institutions founded by Marcus Garvey - evidence exists all around us that we are far from free.
As advocated by Garvey, let’s continue to unify, fight, and help ourselves. We deserve it.
