Everyday Black History- Amy Jacques Garvey

One thing I can say about Marcus Garvey, he loved women named Amy. Not only did he love them, they loved him. This strong Black woman named Amy Jacques Garvey didn’t stop the cause when her husband went to prison.

Amy Jacques Garvey was the second wife of Marcus Garvey. But, that’s not her claim to fame. She also was a pioneering journalist, publisher, and advocate for the improvement of African-American lives through Black Nationalism. What did James Brown say? “It’s a man’s world, but it’s nothing without a woman.”
