In february is BLACK HISTORY MONTH created to acknowledge key figures from our past and present. It's an opportunity to spotlight and celebrate the achievements that African Americans have accomplished, despite the history of racism and oppression.

Rastafari culture is an important part of black history and is celebrated during Black History Month. Rastafari is a spiritual movement that originated in Jamaica in the 1930s, and it is based on the teachings of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican political leader who advocated for the repatriation of African people to their ancestral homeland.

Their culture is centered around the worship of Haile Selassie I, the former Emperor of Ethiopia, who is seen as a messianic figure.  The rejection of materialism, the use of cannabis as sacrament, which is believed to bring the user closer to God. Cannabis is seen as a symbol of freedom and is used in religious ceremonies and rituals. And the belief in the eventual repatriation of the African diaspora to Africa.

Rastafari culture is also characterized by its music, art, and fashion, which often feature bright colors and dreadlocks, which are seen as a symbology of strength and pride. Reggae music is the most popular genre of music associated with Rastafari culture, and it is often used to spread messages of peace, love, and unity.

  “This world was not created piecemeal. Africa was born no later and no earlier than any other geographical area on this globe. Africans, no more and no less than other men, possess all human attributes, talents and deficiencies, virtues and faults.” - Haile Selassie I

"The more you accept the herb, the more you accept rastafari" -Bob Marley-
