In the 1930s, the “Rastafarian” movement developed in Jamaica. This is a religion classified as part new religion, and sociopolitical movement. Rastafarianism is believed to have sprouted from the suppression of the Afro- Jamaicans in ‘Babylon’, who had been traded as slaves and exiled as captives. According to BBC.uk, the movement began with Marcus Garvey, a political leader who led the Universal Negro Improvement Association, with the intention of bringing blacks back to their homelands, “Ethiopia”, being Africa.
