Today's Black Love History Lessonย  | When being evenly yolked sparks a revolution!
.
In Black Love, it has been common for parents to advise their children to seek a partner that is evenly yolked. To be evenly yolked is to be joined together with someone of similar upbringing or thought.
.
In American History, we hail Marcus Garvey as being the leader for the first Black Nationalist movement. But what you may not have known is that his love match with Amy Jacques was an evenly yoked pairing that sparked a revolution.
.
Prior to marrying Amy Jacques, Marcus was known as the founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) and a civil rights leader in his own right.
.
Prior to marrying Marcus, Amy was a pioneer of Pan-African emancipation. She was dedicated to dissemination of the philosophy and principles of race, self-reliance, and nationhood.
.
After the two were married in 1922, Marcus was sent to prison on charges of mail fraud in connection with the Black Star Line. Amy came to his defense, represented him, made speeches, and raised funds to get him released.
After Marcus was released, they were deported to from the United States but the tour continued.
.
After Garveyโ€™s death in 1940, Amy continued the struggle for black nationalism and African independence until her death in 1973.
.
We celebrate this revolutionary evenly yoked duo as a perfect pairing and example of Black Love!
