9780099501459: Negro With a Hat: The Rise and Fall of Marcus Garvey

Definitive biography of Marcus Garvey from an exciting and talented new writer.

At one time during the first half of the twentieth century, Marcus Garvey was the most famous black man on the planet. Hailed as both the ‘black Moses’ and merely ‘a Negro with a hat’, he masterminded the first International Convention of the Negro Peoples of the World, began the Universal Negro Improvement Association and captivated audiences with his powerful speeches and audacious ‘Back to Africa’ programme. But he was to end his life in penury, ignominy and friendless exile, after serving hail time in both the US and Jamaica.

With masterful skill, wit and compassion, Colin Grant chronicles Garvey’s extraordinary life, the failed business ventures, his misguided negotiations with the Ku Klux Klan, the two wives and the premature obituaries that contributed to his lonely, tragic death. This is the dramatic cautionary tale of a man who articulated the submerged thoughts of an awakening people.

About the Author:

Colin Grant is the son of Jamaican parents who came to Britain in the late 1950s. He spent five years failing to study medicine before turning to the stage. He has written and produced numerous plays including The Clinic, based on lives of the photojournalists, Don McCullin and Tim Page. He joined the BBC in 1989 and worked as a script editor and producer of the arts programmes on BBC World Service before joining BBC radio Science Unit.

Review:

"A brisk and well-researched biography... A splendidly colourful book" * Daily Telegraph * "Gripping and sympathetic...monumental...Grant writes with the quiet authority of a historian who has done a colossal amount of research... and knows the smells and tastes of this period as if he had lived through it. He is slow to pass judgement, but when he does so, the verdict carries real weight... His history reads like a first-rate novel... Grant's book is a fine and valuable monument to [Garvey's] memory" -- Kevin Jackson * New Statesman * "Grant is an accomplished storyteller and writes with an elegance leavened by wit and cynicism that makes this book eminently readable" -- Margaret Busby * Guardian * "In this superb new biography, Colin Grant portrays Garvey as a showman-ideologue [and] is to be congratulated on this scholarly, well-written account" * Sunday Telegraph * "Engrossing...Writing in a concise, expressive style...drawing on gargantuan research...Grant meticulously chronicles Garvey's eventful odyssey and sheds light on his revolutionary thinking and formidable public speaking...he shows Garvey's heady triumphs and crushing disappointments, his complexity, his paradoxes" * Independent on Sunday *
