The life of African liberationist, Marcus Garvey, is told through archive, drama, interviews, and photography
The charismatic Caribbean hero and Pan Africanist Marcus Mosiah Garvey is regarded globally as one of the world’s foremost 20th-century civil-rights leaders.
Filmed in Jamaica, Ghana, Canada, USA, UK and Central America, this film about his life blends live-action and stunning photographs with no-holds-barred interviews and conversations with world-renowned leaders, scholars, and personalities.
Multiple Emmy award-winning actor Keith David narrates, along with contributors including Louis Gossett Jr, Danny Glover and reggae artists Sean Paul and David Hinds.
Professor Gus John will chair a panel of distinguished historians and commentators after the screening, and we hope to also welcome director Roy T Anderson.
