Installation of The Marcus Garvey Bronze Statue

At the African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in the office of His

Excellency Kwesi Quartey, the Deputy Chairperson of the African Union Commission

on November 11, 2019. During the meeting between H.E. Kwesi Quartey and the

Executive Director of the Pan African Technical Association, Mr. Yaw Frederick Davis

and PATA colleagues, Mr. Bekalu Tesfaye and Ms. Samantha Jackson, the statues of

H.I.M. Haile Selassie and Dr. Kwame Nkurmah were discussed. H.E. Kwesi Quartey

stated that he would love to see a statue of the Right Excellent Honorable Marcus

Strictly Roots and the renowned Los Angeles artist Mr. Nijel Binns to create the

Marcus Garvey Bronze. The clay bust of the Bronze is as shown. The completion

Africa in the 1920’s and creating the largest organization of people of African

ancestry that the world has seen. It is our aim that the legacy of Mr. Garvey and the

UNIA & ACL be enshrined forever through a bronze sculpture at the African Union


We would like to give Africans and the Diaspora renewed motivation to make the

dreams of the Three Pillars a reality through the creation of a United Africa with its
