government and active members from around the world.  

The government of the UNIA-ACL has been working consistently in
building for Race First Self Reliant Universal African Nationalism within the
21st Century for Africans both at home and abroad. We have partnered
with PADU the Pan African Diaspora Union, SRDC the Sixth Region
Diaspora Caucus, CBPM the Collective Black Peoples Movement,
Harambee Radio/TV, ADACI the African Diaspora Ancestral
Commemoration Institute  and many other progressive movements,
institutions, and organizations.

Since 2008 we have established 13 new divisions around the world,
reestablished our Citizenship Process, appointed Ambassador's,
increased our Parent Body and reached out to you via self reliant
communications ways and means around the world. We have hosted two
successful conventions in Detroit, Michigan in 2009, Washington DC in
2010, where we hosted guest speakers Del Walters, Dr Sebe, Dr Robert
Brock, CR Gibbs, Dr Tilli Williams, Tanikka Cunningham and many other
artist and speakers. Still there is much work to be done and will be, as we
advance towards the 100th Centenary of the UNIA-ACL in 2014. Next
years 55th International convention will be held in Atlanta, Georgia in
August 2012.

At this years convention our 97th year legacy shall continue. We are
focused on building sustainable living situations for self determination and
self reliance for Africans both at home and abroad. Working on
partnerships towards unity without uniformity with Africans around the
world.  Advancing the works, words and deeds of our founder the Right
Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey, our UNIA-ACL ancestors and the
legacies of all the President Generals who have served us since Garvey.
President General's Stewart, Sherrill, Harvey, James, Maddox, Garvey Jr,
Battle, and Gee. Be aware there are no others that are authentic and
official continuing with integrity, within the autonomous independent
government structure established by our founder.

As the 10th President General and     9th successor to Hon. Marcus
Mosiah Garvey, I am calling on all Africans to join us as we work within the
whirlwind of our ancestors to establish what we will. You are needed for in
numbers we gain strength and power.  Mother Africa is under serious
attack and Africans around the world are pressed to the wall. We can't
remain apathetic and not take our own destiny into our own hands. We
face many problems, yet we can, we will, we must come up with our own
solutions to address our problems. We can not nor should we ever expect
the other fellow to do for us what we can and must do for ourselves. What
will our children say about us? Join the UNIA-ACL government today and
become a solid part of helping us find solutions and build for a more
prosperous future. Garvey Lives! Up you Mighty Race We Can
Accomplish What We will!

One God, One Aim, One Destiny!
I remain to humble serve,
President General
Senghor Jawara Baye
