The Red, Black, and Green flag is something that’s often hung by many black organizations around the world. In 1920, Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association held its first national convention in New York’s Madison Square Garden. Over 25,000 black people from all over the world came to this convention and another 10,000 waited outside. Some of which came from Africa, Asia, and South America were threatened with death and life imprisonment if they attended the convention but they still came anyway. During the convention, a flag was made to represent black people all over the world. These colors represent the sacrifices our ancestors made to show us “WE ARE SOMEBODY”. They are a symbol of Hope and Unity. We need to have love for one another and put aside all the petty differences. “Learn to see me as a Brother instead of two distant strangers.”
