We bout to take y'all home
Black Star is named after the Blackstar Line, a shipping line incorporated by Marcus Garvey, organizer of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). The shipping line ran from 1919-1922, and was going to be a part of the Back to Africa Movement, taking Blacks back to their country of origin. However, was sabotaged by J. Edgar Hoover/FBI. It was supposed to facilitate the transportation of goods and eventually African Americans throughout the African global economy.
