Marcus Garvey invaded my dreams last night wearing that damn uniform.

Were you really going to take people back to Africa?

"That was my intent."

Why?

"Excuse me?"

Really, why? How can you expect anyone to go back to a place they've never really been? I could go back to Tennessee some day, even though I only actually lived there for a short while, but at least I have some connection to the place. I've at least been there. You were selling a pipe dream.

Marcus turned away stiffly and avoided further contact.

I regretted having said anything at all.
