Scarce letter from the Pan-African advocate on his “determined effort to crown our great movement with success”
Description  

Political leader and publisher (1887–1940) who was a staunch proponent of the black nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements. TLS, one page, 8.25 x 11, Universal Negro Improvement Association letterhead, March 1935. Letter to a co-worker and friend. In part: “I am…asking you to solicit contributions to the expenses of establishing and financing our new International Headquarters in London. I sail from Jamaica for London this month…I am going to England to make the second great drive for putting over the programme of the Universal Negro Improvement Association. From that city you may expect to hear from me in my determined effort to crown our great movement with success.” Repaired partial separations to horizontal folds, otherwise fine condition. A boldly signed letter by this controversial early civil rights leader. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
