Garvey began to urge ardently that all African peoples rise up with pride in their race and heritage:
     For God's sake, you men and women who have been keeping yourselves
     away from the people of your own African race, cease the ignorance; unite
     your hands with the people of Africa, and let us reach out to the highest
     idealism that there is in living, thereby demonstrating to others, not of our
     race, that we are ambitious, virtuous, noble, and proud ....[1]
Racial dignity thus became Garvey's fundamental tenet.

it is not philosophy
     that rules the world, it is power -human power, human force - I mean
     strength, that rules the world,If you develop a strong financial
     power you will control the politics of the country, you will control legislation,  
     and if you can control legislation you will control government and you will
     get all that you want.[2]

The real trouble is that the justice and humanity which poets sing about and preachers wax eloquent over does not exist as a reality. The classes, races and nations who are down, desire a chance to rise, and the classes, races and nations who are on top are endeavoring to keep them down."[3]
