Marcus Garvey's words come to pass
Marcus Garvey's words come to pass

Can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend
Wo-oh-oh can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend

Come, little one and let me do what I can for you
And you and you alone
Come, little one come, wo-oh-oh
Let me do what I can do for you and you alone, wo-oh-oh

You know the right and do heed might
Shall be spanked with many stripes

Weeping and wailing and moaning
You've got yourself to blame, I tell you

Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
I beg you wo-oh-oh
Tell you to do right
Beg you to do right

Where is bag of wire, he's nowhere around
He can't be found
First betrayer who gave away Marcus Garvey
Son of Satan, first prophesy
Catch them, Garvey wo-oh-oh
Hold them Marcus, hold them
prophesy fufill wo-oh-oh
Catch them, Garvey, catch them
Hold them Marcus, hold them
Marcus Garvey, Marcus
Words come with a promisse wo-oh-oh

Marcus Garvey should be taught in all American public schools.. Im latino and he me taught self pride. Knowledge of self and self preservation.


Single use Plastics I had to google it. Wonder what rabbit hole it will lead me into.

For sure! Du Bois was the most significant in the early roots of a movement but Garvey was who Malcolm x took inspiration from, he inspired the ideology of groups like black power nation of Islam.

thats your business. It's good that you learned from Garvey but You should have learned all that at home first.

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.
Liberate the minds of men and ultimately you will liberate the bodies of men.

Africa for the Africans... at home and abroad!
Chance has never yet satisfied the hope of a suffering people.
I have no desire to take all black people back to Africa; there are blacks who are no good here and will likewise be no good there.
