Posthumous Presidential Pardon
The MMG Foundation will be starting a petition to grant The RT. Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey a Posthumous Presidential Pardon.
Marcus Garvey was wrongfully convicted by a U.S. court of mail fraud, a conviction that stalled his movement for racial justice, social progress and economic independence for all peoples of the African Diaspora.
To redress this wrong, a request for a posthumous presidential pardon has been filed by the descendants of Marcus Garvey with the U.S. Department of Justice and the White House Counsel’s Office. This pardon request urges consideration of Garvey’s unjust arrest, trial and incarceration in 1923.
