Re: Garvey Play Question
In Response To: Garvey Play Question ()

greets ras a

i looked around and found this

The emphasis placed on the coronation of Haile Selassie I was important in a colony where the British monarchy was the supreme symbol of power. In the UNIA, Garvey always emphasized a counterhegemonic perspective against European domination and exploitation of Africa. Consistent with this approach, he had written and produced a play, in June 1930, titled The Coronation of an African King, which had scenes set in several African, European, and West Indian capitals. The play was also a dramatic portrayal of the UNIA's work and the attempts by the U.S. and European governments to stem the tide of the Garvey movement.
