Marcus Garvey was an advocate of the Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements and inspired the Nation of Islam and the Rastafarian movement.
Garvey was born in Jamaica, and founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League. Garvey advanced a Pan-African philosophy and it inspired a global mass movement, known as Garveyism. Garveyism would eventually inspire others, from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement.
