This chapter begins in Jamaica where Rastafarians formulated the philosophy that sent them in search of Africa. It demonstrates Rastafari’s internal complexity by examining all facets of the worldview: from religious imaginaries and rituals to political commitments and strategies. It then goes on to situate the Rastas who went to Tanzania amid this plurality with a view to explaining who these particular Rastafarians were.
