Connecting the Dots

Mars is important to know because he was part of the 1920s pan-African Movment and the broader, more international scope of the Harlem Renaissance. In his book, Africans and their History J. Harris mentions Mars alongside Claude McKay, Langhston Hughes, Nicolas Guillen, and DuBois; to then Garveyism, Nkrumah, Makonnen, and the idea of Black people coming together. And then back around to Vodun and skin shade politics. In connecting the dots, you make education more meaningful and miseducation a thing of the past.
