Dr Donna E. McFarlane Curator and Director of the Marcus Mosiah
Garvey Multimedia Museum (2003-2017) carefully reconstructs the history
of Jamaica's museums, and the world of new museum studies centered on
Jamaica's First National Hero life's work and philosophy. The timelessness of
Garvey and The Universal Negro Improvement (UNIA) is examined through
exhibitions, library holdings, local community activities and 21st
century museum technology housed in the historical and renovated Liberty Hall.

Through the energetic and gifted abilities of Dr McFarlane,
Representing Blackness provides the ideological framework as to why there
is value of these kinds of programs in museum settings. Further, McFarlane
is adamant that Garvey must be included in curriculum resources for
all Jamaican schools. Garvey's philosophy and opinions inspire, excite,
and positively affect the self-identity of Jamaican people, while creating
social and economic wealth. Representing Blackness rich in analysis and
imagery shows Liberty Hall as the cultural and educational institution
that is a living monument to Marcus Mosiah Garvey.
