Change.org has started a petition to send to President Barack Obama to encourage him to pardon Marcus Garvey, the Jamaican activist who started the “Back To Africa” movement in the 1920s in Harlem.
President Calvin Coolidge granted Marcus Mosiah Garvey a pardon on November 18, 1927, however he was deported to Jamaica never to return to the United States again and died in 1940 in London, England.
However, a damaged reputation was left behind, and to date his name and legacy has not been cleared and restored to its honorable position from a legal standpoint.
Stand with me in solidarity as we all flood the Senate, the House of Representatives and President Barack Obama with this petition to do the right thing regarding ( H. Con. Res. 44:111th Congress ) that is to clear the record of all the false and trumped up charges used to try and break Marcus Garvey.
