Gov’t closer to establishing Marcus Garvey Museum at his boyhood home in St Ann
After years of deliberation, the Government says it is one step closer towards establishing a Marcus Garvey museum at the National Hero’s boyhood home, in St Ann.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness made the revelation while speaking at the handing over ceremony for two housing units in Seville Heights in the parish yesterday (December 19).
The two housing units were handed over to sisters Jacynth and Carla Johnson who voluntarily relocated from Marcus Garvey’s boyhood home, where the museum is to be built.
Mr. Holness said while he is happy that the sisters now have houses of their own, he is more elated that the process towards creating the museum has been made easier.
The Prime Minister said Marcus Garvey’s teachings must be studied and the Social Housing Programme has propelled this possibility.
He expressed hope that the other parties who are involved in the process, will put the national good over their personal interests.
