Instead of a big commercial promo for the boat ride this year, we are instead highlighting UNITY in the diaspora with a brief photo documentary of Marcus Garvey and the UNIA's actions that sparked worldwide movements that reverberate till this day. From around 1918 to the mid 30's, Harlem not only changed the face of NYC but the world.
Most staged photos in the doc are from Harlem famed James Van Der Zee (RIP), soundtrack laced by Duke Ellington(RIP).
Respect to all Africans, African Americans and Caribbeans living and working together in NYC during this period of time and today, truly amazing. Dont let them tell you otherwise we love each other till death do us apart.
