A Brief History of the Exoneration of Marcus Garvey

By Geoffrey Phillips

Over the past six months, I've heard many competing claims about the exoneration of Marcus Garvey. In order to set the record straight, here's an excerpt from The Marcus Garvey and Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers, Volume 7.


Since then, Representative Charles Rangel has reintroduced the bill, at least two times.

In fact, on January 10, 2007, Representative Charles Rangel reintroduced H. Con. Res. 24 to the 110th Congress: "Expressing the sense of the Congress that the President should grant a pardon to Marcus Mosiah Garvey to clear his name and affirm his innocence of crimes for which he was unjustly prosecuted and convicted." This bill didn't make it out of committee.

This is the reason why I've posted a petition on Causes.com for Representative Frederica Wilson to champion in Congress.

We, the undersigned, are requesting the assistance of our representatives in reintroducing the resolution with the following change in the wording: "Expressing the sense of the Congress that the President should exonerate Marcus Mosiah Garvey to clear his name and affirm his innocence of crimes for which he was unjustly prosecuted and convicted." We urge Congress to take action and reintroduce H.Con.Res. 24 to exonerate Marcus Mosiah Garvey.

As a result of our efforts, we delivered 11,009 signatures to Representative Wilson's office on November 9, 2013.

If the effort to exonerate Marcus Garvey can have bipartisan support from an unreconstructed Southern conservative Senator Jesse Helms and liberal Representative Charles Rangel, surely President Barack Obama can exonerate the Right Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey?
