Who popularized the slogan “Africa for the Africans at home and abroad”?

The slogan “Africa for the Africans at home and abroad” was made famous by Jamaica-born black nationalist leader Marcus Garvey (1887-1940), who came to New York in 1916.

Garvey built a mass movement calling for an end to oppression of blacks in Africa and the United States.

Convicted of mail fraud (a charge he denied), he was deported to his native Jamaica in 1927. He died in London.
