ONE GOD - ONE AIM - ONE DESTINY
Marcus Mosiah Garvey established the UNIA ACL on July
20, 1914 in Kingston, Jamaica.
Mr. Garvey built a mass organization that went beyond
mere civil-rights agitation and protest and based itself upon a definitive,
well-thought-out program that would lead to the total emancipation of the Black
race from foreign dominion.
Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities' League is a social,
friendly, humanitarian, charitable, educational, institutional, constructive
and expansive society, and is founded by persons desiring to the utmost to work
for the general uplift of the Negro peoples of the world. And the members
pledge themselves to do all in their power to conserve the rights of their noble
race and to respect the rights of all mankind, believing always in the
Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God. The motto of the organization is
"One God! One Aim! One Destiny!" Therefore, let justice be done to
all mankind, realizing that if the strong oppresses the weak, confusion and
discontent will ever mark the path of man but with love, faith and charity
towards all the reign of peace and plenty will be heralded into the world and
the generations of men shall be called Blessed.
