B.I.G Awards Honoree, Michael R. Duncan

Michael R. Duncan

Of the many hats that Michael R. Duncan wears – husband, father, business owner, PTA volunteer, community leader and soccer club president – the one that means the most to him is that of being the 10th successor in the hierarchy of leadership established by the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. In that capacity President General Michael R. Duncan resolutely vows that all his possessions are for the benefit of people of African descent.

Under his guidance, the UNIA is on its way back to Prominence, as Black People are counting on the UNIA to lead as it did under the auspices of Marcus Garvey. The President General [PG] Michael Duncan is the owner of the Jamaica Breeze Restaurant, he uses much of its profits to fund the UNIA Division, 432 [Marcus Garvey / Carlos Cooks] in the borough of Queens and in Harlem, New York. In addition, the COMMUNITY FOCUS Radio Show, which is broadcast Mondays and Tuesdays on WVIP 93.5 FM from 8PM to 9 PM is sponsored by Jamaica Breeze Restaurant.

PG Michael Duncan attended Baruch College of CUNY and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. Soon after, he revitalized the Rosedale Soccer Club a physical activity program that helps youth build character through sports. PG Michael Duncan is certain that if we act cohesively as a team, then we can improve our neighborhoods, as we build self-respect respect and self- improvement in our respective communities – this remains a major teaching of Marcus Garvey. This is called a “Race first policy”

PG Michael Duncan is happily married to his wife Sophia, and are the parents of four children. During the last twenty years, PG Michael Duncan has volunteered in the Public School system and has been elected PTA President many times, never missing an opportunity to teach the message of Marcus Garvey. He remains troubled as Garvey was, that Black people remain involved and satisfied with a system that seeks to dehumanize them, while being unwilling to help ourselves and our brothers.

PG Michael Duncan seeks to remedy that by calling upon all Black men to, “stand up and provide and protect their African family.”
