Marcus Garvey on Vladimir Lenin

'One of Russia's greatest men, one of the world's greatest characters, and probably the greatest man in the world between 1917 and 1924, when he breathed his last and took his flight from this world...We as Negroes mourn for Lenin because Russia promised great hope not only for Negroes but to the weaker people of the world'.
Marcus Garvey, speech in New York, 27 January 1924, quoted in Jacob A Zumoff, 'The African Blood Brotherhood from Caribbean nationalism to Communism', Journal of Caribbean History
