Item description for La flota negra (Spanish Edition) by Jazmin Ross...

A mixture of biography, historical novel, spy tale and testimonial, this story transpires between the port of Limn in Costa Rica and Harlem, N.Y. The narrative revolves around the magnetic personality of Marcus Garvey, the leader of the twentieth centurys first large-scale black movement and predecessor to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. Garvey fired the imagination of millions of African descendants and set off one of the most fascinating episodes of the Harlem Renaissance and the African diaspora. This nautical adventure tells the story of the many sailors and passengers eager to secure a place on ships destined to cross an ocean of frustration.

Blurb in Spanish:

Viejos barcos algodoneros que recorren el Caribe tripulados por marineros negros, declamadoras que recitan en cubierta abrazadas a enormes munecas de trapo, pasajeros avidos de asegurarse un espacio en naves destinadas a cruzar un oceano de frustraciones, son los protagonistas de "La flota negra", una aventura naviera de los 20.

La narracion gira en torno a la personalidad rotunda y magnetica de Marcus Garvey, lider del primer movimiento negro de masas del siglo XX, antesesor de Martin Luther King, Malcolm X y los independentistas africanos. Con sus vapores convertidos en panfletos flotantes, y su debilidad por lo fastuoso y lo triunfal, Garvey encendio la imaginacion de millones de descendientes de africanos y dio vida a uno de los episodios mas fascinantes del Renacimiento Negro de Harlem y la diaspora africana.
