About Us
A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. Africa for the Africans… at home and abroad!

– Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey

Emancipation is Our Priority

UNIA operates the Rosedale Soccer Club in Queens, NY. For self-reliance economics, the UNIA operates the FACA♦ROC at 132-05 Merrick Blvd, where all dry goods, fish, meats, produce and vegetables are sold, distributed from our countries.

For media and information, the UNIA conducts the COMMUNITY FOCUS Radio Show on 93.5FM every Monday and Tuesday, 8PM to 9PM.

Our History

Established 1914

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 with Self-Reliance as its foundation.
