Dr. Julius W. Garvey
Surgeon and Medical Professor
Founder of Justice4Garvey
Join us for Dr. Garvey’s second visit to Oak Park, Sacramento on November 9. Earlier this year in September, Dr. Garvey screened “Whirlwind: The Marcus Garvey Story” and participated in a panel discussion at the inaugural Oak Park Black Film Festival.
Dr. Julius W. Garvey was born on September 17, 1933 in Kingston, Jamaica to United Negro Improvement Association founder Marcus Garvey and activist Amy Jacques Garvey. The younger of two sons, Garvey was raised in Jamaica.
Dr. Garvey has spent his life trying to clear his father’s name. Marcus Garvey, who led an international movement to support unity and economic development in the Black community through the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), was imprisoned in 1925 for mail fraud and deported back to Jamaica in 1927. Through the “Justice4Garvey” campaign, Dr. Garvey has launched an international effort to gain support for a posthumous presidential pardon.
