Dir: Roy T. Anderson
The ‘Negro Moses’ arrived on the scene on August 17, 1887 in the tiny seaside town of St. Ann’s Bay on the northern coast of Jamaica, fifty-three years after slavery was abolished in that country. In his short life Marcus Mosiah Garvey, would go on to become the world’s foremost Pan-Africanist and, in some eyes, the greatest mass leader of the twentieth century.
Award-winning director Roy T. Anderson peels back all the layers in his presentation of this oft-
misunderstood and controversial figure in African Redemption: The Life and Legacy of Marcus Garvey, an 85-minute feature-length documentary-film. Multiple Emmy award-winning actor Keith David (Greenleaf, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Crash) lends his voice as narrator on the film.
