Emancipated from Mental Slavery: Selected Sayings of Marcus Garvey"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds." Those words are commonly associated with Bob Marley. As well known as those lyrics from Redemption Song" are, what is not as well known is the source. Marcus Garvey was a journalist, editor, publisher, as well as founder, and President-General of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA.) This book serves as an introduction to the philosophy which made his ideas known worldwide. Notable among them is the phrase which has come to many sung as a paraphrased lyric, by Bob Marley. Its power and compelling urge for a new mental state among the human race can not seriously be denied:“We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery, for though others may free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind.” Those are the words which Marcus Garvey spoke in November 1937. The place? Menelik Hall in Sydney, Nova Scotia. This selection of sayings of the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, provides an introduction to the mind of the man capable of speaking words which continue to have a profound impact to this day.
