Called the "Father of Negro Nationalism", Garvey signed this letter just three years after moving the Universal Negro Improvement Association from Jamaica to London in an attempt to revitalize his organization. A proponent of Black pride and racial separation, he had founded the UNIA in his native Jamaica. To unite American Blacks and raise the funds needed for his proposed exodus to Africa, he moved to New York in 191 6. During the UNIA's first international convention at Harlem's Liberty Hall in 1920, the "Black Moses" gained great popularity as a result of his remarkable speeches embracing the uniqueness of the Black heritage.

He claimed some two million followers during his "Harlem Renaissance" and established several businesses to assist his people. One of his enterprises, a steamship company called the Black Star Line, resulted in his downfall. President Calvin Coolidge commuted the sentence two years later, but Garvey was immediately deported to Jamaica.

He severed his ties with the American branches, and renamed his organization the Parent Body of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, the title used on this letterhead. His efforts in London never generated adequate support, and he died there two years after signing this letter.
