Amy Ashwood Garvey, was the first wife of Marcus Garvey, founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). Their 1919 marriage was short-lived as, three years later (1922), he married his second wife Amy Jacques Garvey. Biographer Tony Martin describes Amy Ashwood Garvey as a "precocious child who grew into a talented, attractive woman of expansive horizons and boundless energy ... A restless figure, she lived or sojourned in Jamaica, Panama, the United States, England, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago and Las Palmas, among other places."
