HUNDREDS IMPRESSED BY EASON OF GARVEY MOVEMENT Louisville had its first opportunity to hear something of the Garvey Movement from first hand sources last Sunday. The Garvey "Movement" is the Universal Negro Improvement Association.
Last Sunday Messrs. J. W. H. Eason and Fred A. Toote came to the city and spoke at the Chestnut St., C. M. E. Church. They also spoke at Liberty Hall, Jackson St. Church and Oakland Additions and at the Odd Fellows Hall. They did a great deal toward lifting the organization in the estimation of local people. They declared the Garvey Movement is designed to rouse the race conscious ness in the Negro peoples of the world. There is no intention of having Negroes run pell-mell into Africa. That is both impossible and inadvisable, they said.
They urged the Negro to get a better opinion of himself, to have more self-respect, to patronize each other in business, to stick together politically and to always bear in mind and practice the motto: "For the Negro, first, last and all the time."
The visit of these gentlemen has done a great good in clearing away false impression of the Garvey movement.
Already well known people are planning to organize another branch. There are three divisions in the city at present.
