About the Book

Emancipated From Mental Slavery

Current events seem fitting as having led to the publication of the book entitled Emancipated From Mental Slavery. Right now melanin is worth over $441 a gram more than gold. The aromatic biopolymer and organic semiconductor that makes Black people black is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, coltan and carbon…COMBINED!!! On August 13, 2020 we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Red, Black, and Green flag as the colors of all African people, as well as its birth certificate, the Declaration of Rights of the Negro Peoples of the World

Cover from the July 31, 1926 edition of the Negro World Newspaper presenting the Declaration of Rights of Negro Peoples of the World which gave us the Red, Black and Green on August 13, 1920.

The Work That Has Been Done

Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” contains the lyric “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds.” That is actually a paraphrased quote which originated with Marcus Garvey.

We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery, for though others may free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind.

Those are the words which Marcus Garvey spoke on October 31, 1937. The place? Menelik Hall in Sydney, Nova Scotia. They were part of a speech entitled “The Work That Has Been Done.”

Selected Sayings of Marcus Garvey

Music lovers worldwide recognize Bob Marley’s Redemption Song for its profound lyrics. A phrase in that song is so powerful people relentlessly seek the philosophy from which it originated. So notable is the paraphrased lyric some try to deceive, inveigle, and obfuscate its source. None can seriously deny the lyric’s organic power and compelling urge for a new mental state of emancipation.

This book is a selection of sayings of the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. It introduces readers to the mind of the man who spoke words profoundly impacting those who hear them today. Marcus Garvey was a journalist, editor, publisher, as well as founder, and President-General of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL.)

We produced this book As a distillation of Garvey thought, after becoming a dues paying member of the UNIA-ACL. It became necessary after we spent years studying Marcus Garvey’s words, works, and deeds. This includes the Negro World weekly newspaper, as well as, the Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey Volumes 1, 2, and 3. We also studied the UNIA-ACL constitution. This volume shows his legacy is still enough potent to this day that efforts continue to dissuade seekers of truth from his vision of African Redemption.

This book also gives a glimpse of those who stood side by side with Garvey. Besides his wife Amy Jacques, we present the Honorable Lady Henrietta Vinton Davis. There is also a picture of his niece Ruth Garvey Prescott dressed in her Black Cross Nurse Uniform. We also include political cartoons from the Negro World. That is an opportunity for readers to see graphic presentations of the ideas represented. Prince Robert Lincoln Poston was Secretary of the UNIA when he departed this life aboard ship returning from the Liberia mission of 1924. We introduce readers to Garvey’s successor as UNIA-ACL President-General in the person of James Robert Stewart, as well.

Lady Davis’ unmarked grave resulted in the list of over 155 African-American women and girls lynched by Americans going viral. Twice. The first time in July 2013 as a marker was being unveiled on her grave. Nine months later, it happened again. It was during February 2014 and led to the first Sacred Libation Ceremony honoring African-American women who lynched by Americans.
