On Nov 2nd, 1930, during a time of rampant lynchings, colonialism, imperialism and oppression around the world, a Black king and queen were crowned in splendor in Ithiopia, the only sovereign nation in Ifrica, sending a symbolic and tangible message about the royal lineage of Africans and sparking a sense of pride in a downtrodden people who saw images of people who looked like themselves, shrouded in majesty and adoration.

HIM Haile Selassie insisted that Woizero Menen Asfaw was crowned in glory beside him, rather than the traditional 3 days later, making clear their commitment to equal rights and justice for women and men. This mystical display of sovereignty, pride, equity and justice remains relevant today, Coronation Day, 79 years later. BLESSED LOVE!

Yes I, Blessings Royal Dawtas! Give full thanks for the beautiful and glorious description of HIM Coronation Ilabration!! INI must look to His Imperial Majesty and Empress Menen's union as our Ixample of a perfect relationship. The Alpha and the Omega.

One love to all you mamas! What a wonderful world we live in --I feel so blessed to have this rasta mama community to go to for up lift meant! I live on the east coast --connecticut-- and living out my livity has been tough! I know how I want to live --I have the theory-- I just need to put it into practice. My husband and I have an almost 2 year old boy. We are thinking about moving out to cali to find some like-minded friends! Any east coast mama's out here? If so I'd love to talk! We'd love more than anything to be able to invite some friends over for an ital dinner! Peace and love to you all.

I'm not Rasta, but I lurk here and I recently moved to Cali and tried to find some Rastas (I'm thoroughly interested, but I'm a book-learner by nature, so I've come to realize that I have to find actual people if I want to learn about Rasta life).

I'm in the East Bay Area and I was told that the Rastas here aren't very cohesive. (A Rasta woman told me this.) She rec'd. a bookstore and a restaurant if I want to find Rastas to talk to, but was clear that they don't really stick together and form tight community (or even loose community, it seems) here. I was a tad bit disappointed, but I haven't gone to the bookstore or restaurant, yet, so I have no personal experience to go by.

I don't know how it is further south.

Is anyone still on here? I have so enjoyed your convos and would love to learn more from you. I am happy to share about my life as well. I am not Rasta but want to learn so much. There was a Rasta family in one of the homeschool groups that we spend time with, but I haven't seen them in a very long time. My husband says that because I am white I can not live this life. He also says that if I wear locs, I would be making fun of the religion and not honoring it. Is anyone around that wants to talk to me about this?

rasta is about one love and unity. people of all colors can find truth. people all over the world wear locks for different reasons. if you find it in your heart, listen for guidance and choose to grow locks that is your choice. for me my locks are a covenant between myself and JAH.
maybe what your husband is speaking of is the idea that for many locks are spiritual and if someone grows locks for vanity or recreation it may be seen as disrespectful. i dont personally feel this way as i feel i am unable to judge someone elses truth, lifestyle or relationship with the creator. i do sometimes get frustrated when others assume unkind things about me or my children because they have had negative interaction with other dreadlocked people but that is only an opportunity to teach and be open.
some believe " you must dread up to be rasta" but again, i feel each one is guided differently. Selassie I HIMself did not dread. pray meditate and educate

It has been nearly a year since the last posting...where are you rasta sistren?  I am posting because I have a question...

I am reading the Kebra Negast and an aware of the many versions.  Does one provide more overstanding than another? I know it all the word of Jah, but I am confused by the many translations...what is the earliest printed version? 

Bless,

Liz

What type of hair do you have?   I have dark blonde "white girl" hair and can give you my experience... I had natural dreads for several years.  Hopefully other mamas with diverse hair types can chime in!
