African Heritage Magazine, 1964. 

African Heritage Magazine, African Heritage Publishing Co., New York, 1964. 

This 1964 magazine embodied Marcus Garvey’s self determination ethos and the demand for independence that rushed across former African colonies throughout the diaspora.  This publication sought to cultivate the mindsight of collective struggle as it covers historical and contemporary actions, as local as a Rochdale consumer protest against Jamaica Avenue merchants, and to uncover the status of international events such as the Panama Canal.  The focus of this issue is on the industrial and socio-cultural potential of Jamaica and Liberia.  It includes articles by John Henrik Clarke and Dr. Julius W. Garvey, son of Marcus Garvey.  The magazine rounded out its editorial theme with performance and book reviews.  I have found one other citation of the publication of a J. H. Clarke article in a 1959 issue of the magazine.

Did you know?

The preamble of the Cuban Constitution recognizes “the Indians who preferred extermination to submission”, “the slaves who rebelled against their masters”, and “those who awoke the national consciousness and the ardent Cuban desire for an independent homeland and liberty.”
