Hon. Marcus Garvey
118th Birthday Anniversary Celebration
August 17, 2005
In commemoration of the 118th birthday of the Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, the Jamaica Progressive League in conjunction with the Bronx Borough President, Mr. Adolfo Carrion, Jr. will host a civic ceremony and reception at the Office of the Bronx Borough President, 851 Grand Concourse (Bronx County Court in the Rotunda), Bronx, New York 10451, at 6:00pm – 9:00pm, August 17, 2005.
You and the members of your organization are invited to attend this will be a landmark event. We are using this occasion as a show of support as we join in the efforts led by Congressman Charles Rangel to have the United States Government exonerate Mr. Garvey. Invited guests include Ambassador Shirley and other members of the diplomatic corps, academia, the community and local politicians.
Looking forward to your attendance.
