Marcus Garvey’s Irish Influences: Pan-Africanism and Diasporic Connectivity

October 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

As founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), Marcus Garvey built one of the largest pan-Africanist organisations in history. The
Jamaican-born activist mobilised millions in arguing for the establishment of an independent Black nation – a call that gained global traction after World War I.

Like anti-colonial nationalists in Asia and Africa, Garvey took inspiration from the Irish struggle against British rule and championed the case for an Irish republic.

This talk by Dr Miriam Nyhan Grey, will examine the strategic and symbolic importance of Irish diasporic nationalism to Garveyism, drawing out connections between the two movements.
