In 1914 Pan-Africanist Marcus Garvey (1887-1914) initiated the Universal Negro
Improvement Association (U.N.I.A.) as a means of uniting all of Africa and its Diaspora into one grand racial hierarchy. The Black Star Line was the teamship company operated by the U.N.I.A. It was to be the vehicle for promoting worldwide commerce among black communities. In the 1920s and 1930s Garvey became unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global movement focusing on Africa. Apart from the more political idea of Pan Africanism throughout the State of L3 project, the concept of Afrofuturism also plays a key role. Thinkers and artists of this African diaspora subculture see technology and science-fiction as a means of exploring the black experience and finding new strategies for the future.
