Rastafari is a religious movement that grew out of Jamaica during the 1930s. The Rastafarian movement “has been described [by social scientists] as a ‘political cult,’ a ‘messianic movement,’ a ‘politico-religious cult’ among other labels. But as the researchers move into the details of their descriptions, all present in one form or another the content of ‘Protest’ in the belief system of the movement” (Pollard 1982:19).
