I'll say no more!
I listened to the speech. Was this speech read by someone for Marcus Garvey from his notes and writings or was the entire speech his own voice and oration?
What I heard on the video was the speaker sharing what was on going in the 1950's.
The reason I asked who was giving this speech is based on that.
In the video @ 40:01 to 40:32 _ the speaker stated.
I looked up the year Marcus Garvey was with us, he died June 1940.
The title of the video says it is a "Marcus Garvey Interview."
Can you clarify on the time line. Marcus died in 1940 and the speaker is making observations that were happening in 1950 about neutron bombs and stuff?
The bomb was dropped on Japan On August 6, 1945
Starting at 38:44 an addendum by another speaker orating Garvey as if he was alive in the present.
I read and saved this publication in March 2013. It has some of his poignant inner thoughts and follows his travels back to Jamaica. In there he outlines who betrayed him. Ruined his Black Star Line shipping vessels and speaks about the Association's 6,000,000 Membership of the Universal Negro Improvement Association.
