The Rastafarian movement is a set of spiritual beliefs based on the teachings of Jamaican born Black Nationalist Marcus Garvey. Garvey advocated a “Back to Africa” movement and sought to break the pattern of inferiority and self-hatred that had developed among many blacks after hundreds of years of slavery and oppression.
These ideas resonated among poor people living in the ghettos ofKingston,Jamaica and so the movement grew there in the 1920’s and 1930’s.
