New Book on Marcus Garvey: 'Negro With a Hat'

Marcus Garvey in many ways symbolizes the greatness of Jamaica and Jamaicans. He wasn't very tall and he was not from riches, but he was a brilliant leader and a true visionary. What he did for people of African Ancestry worldwide remains invaluable even today. Marcus Garvey was about self pride, dignity, and respect for people of African ancestry, among other things. Many places and things have been named after him all over the world. He is Jamaica's first national hero. And yet there are still people today who contend that Marcus Garvey's life was a failure. Yup, haters and naysayers have been set loose upon the earth.

Biographer Colin Grant takes a look (yes, add yet another look to the long list of looks) at the life of Marcus Garvey in his new book Negro With a Hat: The Rise and Fall of Marcus Garvey and His Dream of Mother Africa. We are not sure that we like that title Colin, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

Here is the Guardian Unlimited's take on Colin Grant's new book:

See you in Jamaica.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is
completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
