Description: At the turn of the century, instead of responding to lynchings of African Americans with peaceful protests, Marcus Garvey was determined to aggressively unify black people around the world and build an independent black nation. Despite accusations of fiscal mismanagement, Garvey established the Universal Negro Improvement Association and traveled the nation attracting thousands of members to the military-decorated ranks of its African Legion. Accusing black leaders such as W. E. B. DuBois and A. Phillip Randolph of being weak and self-serving, Garvey aggressively focused on empowering the masses as he transformed cooks, maids, and janitors with the pride that comes with a title and a uniform. Garvey instituted a new nationalism urging black folk to claim Africa's glorious past and to see, for the first time, the beauty they possessed.
