He took his message of black pride to the United States during the height of the Harlem Renaissance. Garvey died in London in 1940. Even in death Marcus Garvey's teachings and philosophy have impacted many a social and political movements around the world. He is widely seen as a forerunner of the civil rights movement in the U. S. and today's current Black Lives Matter movement. His life story, directed by Roy T.
