Today it’s Emperor Haile Selassie I Birthday, born in 1892, become a central figure of Rastafari when Leonard P. Howell, aka the First Rasta but also the latest most persecuted men in the history of Jamaica, introduced him and commanded the people to “Forward to the King of Abyssinia to learn the worth of womanhood and manhood”. Any discussion of Rastafari that excludes Howell and the history of Jamaica are unreasonable and historically wrong. “No man is indispensable but some are irreplaceable”.

“No man is indispensable but some are ir…

“No man is indispensable but some are irreplaceable” is written on Leonard Percival Howell grave, alias The First Rasta who would have had 120 years today.
As the father of the Rastafari movement, he mingled with Indians, hated the British Establishment, paid years in jail for his teaching and hid away in a room to die.
There is nowadays any inhabited place on earth where a Rasta flag is not visible, and yet our dear Hero is still not recognized as such.
The fight should be rethought in his honor, for his legacy, for making the world a better spot – and a lot of work can be done!

Today celebrates the first ship of 261 Indians who arrived in Jamaica under the forced and oppressive indentured labor system operated by British. With their values and customs, abilities and principles, Indians, in particular Hindus, have made plenty contributions to the island of Jamaica, as their fellows did in other places.
The social acceptance of Indian Culture in Rastafari raises points and counterpoints. If socialization is the process by which society achieves cultural continuity and perpetuates itself, then it is counterproductive to exclude elements of Hinduism from the framework that is imparted to Rastafari posterity.
The historical documentation is significant enough that it would have been a grave misgiving not to show this relationship in film.
173 years of contributions from East Indies to West Indies – Give thanks. #india #indian #hinduism #jamaica #caribbean #history # contributions #rasta #rastafari #culture #memory #cannabis #indianfood #indianspirit #religion #movement #documentary #women #production #givethanks #irie #love #dreads #dreadlocks #celebrationtime #indenturedservant #may10 #film
