Well, thank you very much for your kind words Iyaughta. I do consider it my duty to preserve the history of Rastafari people to the best of my abilities. Rastafari people do have a much deeper roots among our African ancestors and African patriots, which we must reach forward to from time to time. The struggle for the liberation of African people is just like a relay race, so, we pass the baton of the great struggle from generation to generation. Long before the Rastafari people's movement was know in Jamaica, and other parts of the western world, there was a brother whose name was Tacky, who in the year 1760, led the greatest uprising in the Island of Jamaica, which is still written in their books as Tacky's Rebel-lion.
Then in the year 1831, there was the Samuel Sharpe's rebel-lion, then in 1865 there was the Morant Bay rebel-lion led by the great Paul Bogle, all of the above were the early stages of the Rastafari people's movement, considering that all of these struggles, were carried out on behalf of African people, who were and are still in a state of captivity. Marcus Garvey was born 22 years after the Morant Bay rebel-lion and so, as he grew up, he was able to take the baton of good knowledge and the great struggle, and proclaim, Africa for Africans, those at home and those abroad. Marcus Garvey was able to push our black power teachings, because he was fortunate enough to be around good elders who had great respect for their African race. One great elder and African patriot from whom Marcus Garvey was able to learn and be influence with good knowledge was Dr. Robert Love, who was fearless in his agitation for the rights af black people in the Island of Jamaica and other places in this world.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
