He loved a parade May 2 2013
By M. Heiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
My son was asking me about Marcus Garvey, and I'll admit I didn't know the answer. I knew the name, but not the biography.

The closest I could come to an answer was that Marcus Garvey was... maybe... a well-meaning kook? That was about what I had.

So we found this book and one other at the library. "Well-meaning kook" comes pretty close. This book emphasizes how Garvey participated in so many parades! I let my interested son teach me more.

This is an easy read for middle grades. Some vocabulary includes: prominent, hostile, superior, option, compromise, endangering, domination...

This book makes it clear that mocking Marcus Garvey is perhaps the correct response for educated Black people of 2013. But I don't agree. It makes continual note of Garvey's flamboyant exaggerations and barnburner speeches. It also emphasizes his Black Unity movement, Pan-Africanism movement and his separatist beliefs.
