Imagine having fun on a relaxing, soulful Caribbean cruise, celebrating the proud African legacy of Jamaica, Key West and other tropical locales and at the same time supporting a benefit for efforts to unite African people around the world.
The Marcus Garvey Legacy Cruise, December 12-18, 2010, departs from Ft. Lauderdale FL. The cruise honors one of the greatest African leaders of all time, the great Marcus Mosiah Garvey founder of the United Negro Improvement Association which boasted 11 million members worldwide in the 1920s.
This week-long cruise will feature excursions to African historical sites in Key West, FL and to Garvey’s home in Jamaica.
The cruise will offer great entertainment and dancing, as well as good company, lively conversation, great food and a lot of sun and fun.
Participants will have the opportunity to share this cruise with Chairman Omali Yeshitela, leader of the Uhuru Movement, founder of the Black is Back Coalition and Chair of the African Socialist International.
As a fighter for reparations and independence for African people since the 1960s, Chairman Omali is a world traveler who will share his rich knowledge of African history and culture in his personable style.
The cruise takes place on the Carnival ship “Freedom.” As the world’s largest cruise line, Carnival is known for its great cuisine, its “top-notch children’s program” and for its numerous lounges and dance clubs.
Travelers from all backgrounds and ethnicities are welcome to share in this African-centered week of leisure and enjoyment.
Proceeds from the cruise will benefit the work of the African Socialist International (ASI), a growing organization based in Africa, the U.S., Europe, South America and the Caribbean.
Made up of African people around the world, the ASI is working for one united and liberated Africa as the birthright of African people everywhere and as the only solution to the worldwide poverty and oppression faced by millions of our African brothers and sisters.
