J Edgar Hoover, Marcus Garvey, and the 1st Black FBI Agent/Informant

Marcus Garvey soon rose to the top of Hoover’s list. Federal agents, in collaboration with the New York City police, had begun to report on Garvey’s speeches as early as 1917. But as Universal Negro Improvement Association membership and the circulation of The Negro World newspaper ballooned in 1919, Hoover himself targeted Garvey.
Referring to Garvey as a “notorious negro agitator,” Hoover zealously set about to gather damaging evidence on Garvey and his growing movement. According to Kornweibel, “Hoover and the Justice Department were clearly hooked on a fixation on Garvey which would before long become a vendetta.”

hmph, the early days of COINTELPRO…
