76 King Street, Kingston, Jamaica, W.I.


In 2009, Liberty Hall published the first volume of 76 King Street: Journal of Liberty Hall- The Legacy of Marcus Garvey.  The journal focuses on ‘the study of Garvey’s life, work and philosophy; Pan-Africanism; and the history, culture and current affairs of Africa and the Diaspora.’  76 King Street was the idea of Prof. Rupert Lewis, Garvey Scholar and Chairman of the African Caribbean Institute of Jamaica/Jamaica Memory Bank (ACIJ/JMB) and Friends of Liberty Hall Foundation.  In 2007 Prof. Lewis participated in a conference held by Casa de las Ámericas in Cuba in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of Marcus Garvey’s birth.  Following the conference, eight of the presentations, including one delivered by Prof. Lewis were collated and it was suggested that Liberty Hall publish them.  The Cuban dossier, joined by other papers written by Jamaicans formed the manuscript for the first volume. 

76 King Street is a biennial scholarly journal published by Liberty Hall: The Legacy of Marcus Garvey under the auspices of the Friends of Liberty Hall (Marcus Garvey) Foundation.  Some of the themes explored include Mobilization or movement in the time of, and since Garvey, Unsilenced: Afro-Caribbean Women in Black Nationalist Activism, and Pedagogies of/for Black Education.
