Liberty Hall, at 76 King Street, is the only museum of its kind in Jamaica. It contains the Marcus Mosiah Garvey Multimedia Museum, which houses a permanent exhibition entitled ‘Marcus Garvey: The Movement and the Philosophy’. Using interactive touch screens, visitors have access to information on the life of Marcus Garvey (1887-1940), the country’s first National Hero, a political activist, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur and artist. He advanced a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement focusing on Africa known as Garveyism.
The facility’s primary mission is to inform the public about his work. The building is now a national monument. It is the first fully multimedia museum in the Caribbean. Other components of Liberty Hall include the Garvey Research/ Reference Library and educational outreach programmes. The research and reference library houses books, periodicals and audio-visual materials on Marcus Garvey, his movement, Pan-Africanism and the history and culture of African and the Diaspora. The Library also feature a children’s collection, which caters to youths between the ages of 7 and 17.
