Garvey's Ghost

Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr. (1887–1940) was a Jamaican political leader, publisher, journalist, and entrepreneur. He founded the Black Star Line, a part of the Back-to-Africa movement, which promoted the return of the African diaspora to their ancestral lands. Hence, he was revered by rastas far and wide. And here's a heavy heavy roots six pack to prove it. "Marcus Garvey's words come to pass, can't get no food to eat, can't get no money to spend..."

Johnny Clarke - Poor Marcus
