Outline

In the 1970s the Rastafari movement grew from national scorn and disfavour into an internationally-recognized religious expression, mainly because of the international popularity of the music created by the movement’s faithful. Among these faithful, one man stood out and became a national hero and icon.

The times in which he lived were eventful and unusual, as the socialist politics of the ruling PNP government clashed directly with not only the conservatism of its opposition JLP party, but especially with the diametrically different lifestyle, hairstyle and beliefs of the Rastafari movement.

At the height of the 70s, it seemed that Rastafari held more power over the people than the government. Yet in reality, no leader stepped forward to assume the mantle of power and whenever this seemed possible, efforts were made to discredit and destroy any who seemed to have leadership qualities.
