Born in Jamaica, Marcus Garvey was an orator for the Black Nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements, to which end he founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League. Garvey advanced a Pan-African philosophy which inspired a global mass movement, known as Garveyism.

Marcus Garvey believed blacks should own their African heritage and not assimilate into the white culture. Not only did he advocate for black nationalism but also encourage a movement of blacks from America to Africa.
