Excerpts from Look Up, You Mighty Race!
Two Speeches by Marcus Garvey

Shortly after returning form a long tour of the Caribbean and Central America in July 1921, Marcus Garvey recorded two brief speeches on a 78 rpm record. The first speech, "Hon. Marcus Garvey on His Return to the U.S.A.," comments on his problems obtaining a re-entry visa. The second, "Explanation of the Objects of the Universal Negro Improvement Association," is an extract from a much longer UNIA membership appeal. Although Garvey was famous for his oratory, these speeches are the only known recordings of his voice.
