Marcus Garvey to President Louis Borno of Haiti
New York, 3 August 1924
We are in deep sympathy with the indignation of the people of Haiti in the matter of the rape of the country through a forcible occupation by an alien race.
We shall work along with the patriots of Haiti to free her from the yoke of exploitation.
Long live free and independent Haiti, the pride of the black race of the Western world.
Our convention sends greetings to you and the people of Haiti.
