Catalogue Note

A powerful statement from Marcus Garvey, National Hero of Jamaica, journalist and crusader for the rights of blacks throughout the world.  "The difference between men is, that some, during a lifetime, find their stars—thei purpose, their calling—and by preparation lift themselves to the rights of success.  Others fail because they do not know themselves, cannot find their stars, and thus drift out of the way of time and opportunity.  As of individuals, so of races.  Other races have found their stars for centuries; only recently the Negro found his, and he is now about to demonstrate to the world his fitness as a man.  Yours faithfully, Marcus Garvey, N. Y., Jan. 17, 1922."
