Distillation of the founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association’s 1937 lectures on topics ranging from the attainment of universal knowledge to leadership, character, God, and the social system.

In 1937, Marcus Garvey, founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and one of the most controversial figures in the history of race relations, assembled his most trusted organizers to impart his life’s lessons. For one month he instructed this elite student body – at its peak the largest international mass movement of African peoples – on topics ranging from universal knowledge and how to attain it to leadership, character, God, and the social system.
