The Rhetorical Persona: Marcus Garvey as Black Moses.
Ware, B. L.; Linkugel, Wil A.
Communication Monographs, v49 n1 p50-62 Mar 1982
Discusses the nature of rhetorical personae by examining Marcus Garvey as a Moses for Harlem Blacks awaiting a deliverer. Treats the Black Moses persona as the transcendent form and the factors of deliverance in Garvey's speeches--election, captivity, liberation--as the particulars that allow Garvey to participate in the form.
