UNIA Convention Parade, 1920

The Universal Negro Improvement Association became the largest mass movement in African-American history. Its membership was hardly confined to these shores; Garvey had followers throughout the Caribbean, Africa, South America, and Great Britain. UNIA parades in Harlem attracted thousands of marchers and spectators who took pride in the strength, discipline, and display of power of "the New Negro."
