The Rise and Fall of the Garvey Movement in the Urban South
provides the first detailed examination of the Universal Negro
Improvement Association's rise, maturation, and eventual decline in
the urban South between 1918 and 1942. It examines the ways in
which Southern black workers fused locally-based traditions,
ideologies, and strategies of resistance with the Pan-African
agenda of the UNIA to create a dynamic and multifaceted movement. A
testament to the multidimensionality of black political
subjectivity, Southern Garveyites fashioned a politics reflective
of their international, regional, and local attachments. Moving
beyond the usual focus on New York and the charismatic personality
of Marcus Garvey, this book situates black workers at the center of
its analysis and aims to provide a much-needed grassroots
perspective on the Garvey movement. More than simply providing a
regional history of one of the most important Pan-African movements
of the twentieth century, The Rise and Fall of the Garvey Movement
in the Urban South demonstrates the ways in which racial, class,
and spatial dynamics resulted in complex, and at times competing
articulations of black nationalism.
