'Using artifacts, rare photographs, and ephemera to explore the origins and religious practices of the movement in Jamaica, this exhibition takes viewers beyond the popular Jamaican music known as reggae to the deeper roots of the Rastafari culture. Video footage featuring first-person testimony from male and female Rastafari of different ages, nationalities, and racial and class backgrounds speak to Rastafari of unity and to the spread of the movement across the Caribbean and beyond over the past three decades'.

On the launching date, you can go there to listen the authentic sounds of roots reggae performed by a Jamaican musical pioneer: Ras Michael. (Washington D.C.) invites you to come and discover Rastafari.
