Marcus Gravey

Foner gives a brief description of Garveyism and provides some quotes. He mentions the East St.Louis riot of 1917 and the silent protest parade on fifth avenue. Even though Foner covers major events caused by Garveyism they do not tell us what Marcus Garvey’s mission was. Also Foner does not include any examples of those who opposed Garveyism. I feel like the coverage on Garveyism was incomplete and that there was a lot more to Marcus Garvey and his followers than what was mentioned in the text.

Q: What were some of the changes that were brought on by Garveyism?

Q: Did Marcus Garvey work together with other black or white activists at the time?
