Jean Harvey Slappy Research Fellowship

Amount Note:
Funds may be used only to defray costs of travel to Thomas W. Harvey/U.N.I.A. collection.

This fellowship - named in honor of Jean Harvey Slappy, a long-time board member of the Foundation - looks to support individuals working on aspects of the history of the U.N.I.A. (Universal Negro Improvement Association), the A.C.L. (African Communities League), and/or Marcus Garvey's organizational activities, and who wish to use the Thomas W. Harvey/U.N.I.A. collection located at Emory University's Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. While proposals are welcome on a wide variety of research topics (and in a wide variety of disciplines), proposals will be evaluated based on their relevance to key questions in the field of African and African diaspora studies and on the basis of their unique contribution to scholarship.

The Marcus Garvey Foundation, Inc., founded in New York City, is a nonprofit organization whose work is informed by the educational philosophy and ideals of Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Garvey was the founder and leader of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). The largest organized mass movement in black American history, the UNIA also had an international presence that was unprecedented. At its peak it had members in over fifty countries located in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, and Africa.
