Marcus Garvey Park is located at 6316 Mt Morris Park W, New York, NY 10027Wikipedia says: “Marcus Garvey Park (formerly and also named Mount Morris Park) is located in Harlem, and East Harlem neighborhoods in the New York City borough of Manhattan. The 20.17-acre (81,600 m2) park, centered on a massive and steep outcropping of schist and surrounded by flat lawns and playing fields, interrupts the flow of Fifth Avenue traffic,[1] which is routed around the park via Mount Morris Park West. The park is bounded by 120th Street and 124th Street and by Madison Avenue on its east side. The park is operated and maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.

In the summer of 1969 the park was the site of the Harlem Cultural Festival, a series of concerts that came to be known as ‘Black Woodstock.’

In 1970, the Community Thing and other activist groups suggested naming the park for Marcus Garvey, a publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, activist for black nationalism, and founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL).”
