But Pan African thought wasn't imported to the states, of course you have Dubois, but prior to him you had people like Henry mcneal Turner who was clearly Pan African, and you have so many others that are debatable. But even if you look at Garvey's movement, while most of the administration was jamaican... the millions of followers were mostly African American, so I wouldn't say it is anything specific about the the west indies. Maybe something having to do with proximity. How could the ideas of CLR James not rub off on "intellectuals" in such close proximity.
