Representing Blackness
The Marcus Mosiah Garvey Multimedia Museum
by Donna E. McFarlane

Edited by A. Lynn Bolles
Through the energetic and gifted abilities of Dr McFarlane, Representing Blackness provides the ideological framework as to why there is value of these kinds of programs in museum settings. Further, McFarlane is adamant that Garvey must be included in curriculum resources for all Jamaican schools. Garvey’s philosophy and opinions inspire, excite, and positively affect the self-identity of Jamaican people, while creating social and economic wealth. Representing Blackness rich in analysis and imagery shows Liberty Hall as the cultural and educational institution that is a living monument to Marcus Mosiah Garvey.
