Part of a UK tour, Dr Julius Garvey MD will visit Liverpool as part of Liverpool Black History Month on the 19th October 2022. Dr Julius Garvey is a renowned vascular surgeon, but importantly he is the son of the First Jamaican National Hero and major 20th Century Human Rights Leader, Rt. Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Culture Liverpool will host a series of events across the day with a talk in the morning for pupils and students followed by a chance for him to visit key activists finishing with an ‘In-conversation with’ hosted by local creative Maxine Brown.

At this event, Culture Liverpool with Mayor Joanne Anderson will introduce Dr Julius Garvey to local creative and community artist Maxine Brown. There will be an opportunity to hear first hand the work of his father and how Julius is visiting the UK to promote his work in racial justice and freedom of speech. The visit is brought by The Marcus Garvey Legacy Trust (MGLT), founded by songwriter and long-serving community activist Eddie Capone, who regards Marcus Garvey as more than an advocate for the freedom of oppressed black people, but rather as someone who developed a clear and lasting message of hope for all humankind.

The event has been supported by National Museums Liverpool (NML) and you are invited to attend. You can book your free place here.
