***I would like to read some testimony from actual people who knew and worked with Garvey. I would like to see statements that he defrauded/misappropriated the BSL.***
...I didn't say that he defrauded/ misappropriated the BSL, I said that "there seems to have been some mismanagement on Garvey's part, particularly financial..." I was referring more to things that I have read that suggest poor planning/organization re. shipping details, leading to major losses of cargo. BUT:
***Most of what I read are Babylon's accounts.***
…same here, so I too would love some primary sources.
***It is not mystery that the gov't saw Garvey as a threat and wanted him deported. So they had to find something to pin on him to justify deportation.***
…not a mystery at all, and I don’t doubt that indictment on mail fraud charges was just as you said, something to pin on him to get him out of the States.
***I think Garvey's downfall was trying to establish a black socio-economic nation within a white supremacist nation.***
…agreed. That’s why I wrote that
“The Black Star Line was to promote a global African economy; it was to be a Black owned and run company that promoted trade and exchange of services between Black people worldwide. Garvey's vision was revolutionary; the limits of the resources available to him and the power of the forces working against him may have been underestimated. Never the less, the Black Star Line was a very powerful and inspirational symbol of what Africans can do.”
