Marcus Garvey emmigrated from Jamaica to New York City in 1914, bringing with him a message of black empowerment. After touring the United States with his message, his organization started publishing The Negro World, a newspaper. With millions of followers worldwide, Garvey decried racial prejudice in the U.S.A., and urged African-Americans to invest in shares of his organization's shipping company, The Black Star Line. Garvey also promoted the idea of millions of African-Americans moving to Africa to found their own nation.
