Dread History:
The African Diaspora,
Ethiopianism, and Rastafari


Wall mural, Kingston, Jamaica

This mural stands in the front of a recording studio in Kingston. The international trade in tapes, records, and CDs has been central to the spread of Rastafari ideology. Rastafari is the only socio-religious movement that has been globalized primarily through popular culture.
