HST 1530 Prof Shango UNIA Vs. NAACP The Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) was established by Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican immigrant. The UNIA was a nationalist organization for its belief in establishing the prominence of blacks in the future along with increasing the influence of blacks on mankind. The goals of the UNIA were to unite black businesses around the world and to bring all African Americans back to Africa. The UNIA was also established to advance the living conditions of African Americans by helping and creating black businesses. The UNIA was very pro African-American business and recruited people through their generosity. Garvey campaigned against lynching, Jim Crow laws, denial of black voting rights and racial discrimination. Where UNIA differed from other civil rights organizations was on how the problem could be solved. Garvey doubted whether whites in the United States would ever agree to African Americans being treated as equals and argued for segregation rather than integration.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
