He was a Pan Africanist and the founder of the African Times and Orient Reviews in 1911, the first newspaper in England owned and published by a black person. It’s main objective was to spread the need for African nationalism. Through this publication, he developed relationships with a number of black intellectuals, including Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. DuBois, Alain Locke, and Marcus M. Garvey.
He became particularly close to Garvey and joined Garvey’s United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) where he serving as the foreign secretary and the head of African Affairs. Ali left the UNIA following Garvey’s 1927 deportation from the United States.
Ali relocated to Lagos, Nigeria where he founded The Comet in 1933. The newspaper was soon ranked among the top publications in Nigeria during this time, with a circulation of 4,000.
