Marcus Garvey the visionary African is one of the greatest man amongst men who’s action against Western aggression and racial abuse formed the rock on which inspired the advanced developments of the black race in the west . The very first time i herd about Marcus Garvey was part of my history at primary school in Jamaica. The way i felt at that age was anger but also enlightened and inspired in connecting with my African roots.

Why do we need to remember our roots?
I think we should remember our roots because it’s important to know where you come from, what your ancestors did to make us be equal to white people, all the beautiful things they did and also to start spreading the black history through black people views and not white ones. I feel that school’s curriculum doesn’t go into much depth when discussing black history and we should should discuss about other topics than slavery, because there’s more to black people than slavery and also because there’s more to black people than only slavery.
It’s important to know about black history because it gives young black people a sense of self-identity and knowledge of where they come from and also that history is not only about white history.
