Roots & Branches A Multicultural Educational, Entertainment Network and a subsidiary of Lindsay Entertainment Network, is pleased to announce the fourth annual Black History Month lecture series to be held at the Scibelli Hall Theater on the campus of Springfield Technical Community College,
Marcus Garvey’s Historical Legacy Reviewed By His Son Dr. Julius Garvey. Dr. Julius Garvey, an accomplished vascular surgeon, and son of renowned 1920s Black Social Justice leader Marcus Garvey, is one of the featured
speakers, at the 4th annual Black History Month Lecture Presentation Series. Dr. Garvey will offer insight into the continued struggles African Americans faced in the 21st century, for what he called mental and economic empowerment. He will speak richly on the history of his father who in 1914 established the Universal Negro Improvement Association and its coordinating body, the African Communities League, in New York City.


In 1920, the organization held its first convention with a parade down Harlem's Lenox Avenue, advocating, Africans and all African Descendants (Black Americans) should regain control of self and of the wealth of our homeland Africa." In New York City, Garvey's ideas attracted popular support, and thousands enrolled in the UNIA. He began publishing the newspaper The Negro World and toured the United States preaching selfempowerment
and social reform to popular audiences.
