On September 18, 2012, Professor Geoffrey Philp, using The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey as a starting point, combines texts, music, and video into a compelling presentation "Marcus Garvey: (Still) The Most Dangerous Black Man in America." The lecture, which is part of the events sponsored by the Institute for Civic Engagement and Democracy’s Dive into Democracy campaign, culminates in a turn out the vote drive aimed at increasing the number of student and community voters.
"The injustices committed against Marcus Garvey, including the denial of his most basic human rights will be highlighted," said Professor Philp. "The research of legal scholars and historians such as Tony Martin, Robert Hill, Colin Grant, and Justin Hanford will support the online petition to exonerate Marcus Garvey, http://bit.ly/KqUrGh, which is featured at the end of the presentation."
