About this item

The product of nearly 10 years’ labor, Parascandola spotlights the writings of Black nationalist Marcus Garvey’s prolific wife, Amy Jacques Garvey (1895-1973), long considered mainly in terms of her relationship with her husband. This book presents her writings for the first time in the Negro World--the most consistent and significant source for her writings, particularly between 1924-1927, when she edited a weekly woman’s page entitled “Our Women and What They think.” Her main concerns were political and social issues and women’s struggles globally as well as the resistance of various ethnic groups against colonial oppression. Her remarkable speechmaking skills shine brightly in this volume finally freed from the constraints of her husband who kept her speeches brief and usually unrecorded, and was once heard to say: “Now I have a rival, but I am glad she is my wife.” Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
