Marcus Garvey was said by Martin Luther King to be the first man to give millions of black people a sense of dignity and justice. Garvey dreamed of a homeland in Africa for all those black people who would choose to live there: a great State which would take its place on the world stage. Although when he died in 1940 he felt he had failed, his influence is still widely felt. His writings laid the foundations of the Black Power Movement in the USA, and many of today’s African leaders are inspired by his writings. His spirit still lives on.
