You might want to reconsider Marcus Garvey. He was born in Jamaica, the movements he started were largely aimed at and for Jamaicans and other Anglo-Caribbeans, he only resided in the United States during exile, and he fully viewed it as such. Though he dealt with Du Bois and such, they did have many differences, and their national, "constituents," if you will, were a big part of it. Marcus Garvey is a national hero of JAMAICA, he is NOT a great African-AMERICAN. Can these lists and others like them, previous, stop putting people with tenuous links and residence of convenience to the United States who are, in fact, historical icons of other countries, as being shamelessly poached as, "Great Americans?"

I didn't make the list.
