Myths About DreadlocksAllAfrica.comTo some people, it's the coolest thing to posses, the highest form of self-expression. To others, it's a question of identity. "My dreads are my identity." Most Rastafarians belong to this group.

Understanding this religion from Jamaica may give a bit more perspective on the people of Jamaica and their view of the world.

Jah Rastafari by Tchandela

Jah Rastafari by Tchandela | Rastafarian Movement | Scoop.it

Jah Rastafari.

 

The spiritual creed of the Rastafarians (Rastas) of Jamaica have, over the past four decades become a very visible symbol of black cultural struggle for identity and unity internationally by virtue of world renown Rasta Reggae...musicians such as Burning Spear, Culture, Bob Marley and the Wailers and many others. Jah Rastafari - Visions of Faith is an analysis of the phenomenon of Rasta by a Jamaican Rastaman; its birth as a reaction to black racial oppression and the search for a viable avenue for its adherents to reconnect back to an African spiritual perspective. Taking into account the widely held misconceptions about Rastas and the sometimes negative connation associated with the movement, the author dissects the rationale for accepting the emperor Haille Selassie I of Ethiopia as God incarnate and the prevailing ideology of Judeo/Christian biblical philosophy as a means to solidify faith. The emphasis here is to see the dynamics of Rasta as an offshoot of much older African/Jamaican spiritual systems, directly influenced by an African spiritual heritage stemming back many thousands of years into the past.
