This chapter examines the emergence of Garveyism and notes its historical significance. It provides a historiography of Garveyism studies focused on the work of Marcus Garvey, Amy Jacques Garvey, and the United Negro Improvement Association. It also focuses on the marginalization of Garveyism within the mainstream American academy, and pays tribute to the work of African diaspora and Garveyism studies scholars who pushed back against this erasure. And it provides a roadmap for the volume by briefly introducing each of the chapters in the volume.
