    The increasingly popular book, "Overstanding Rastafari - Jamaica's Gift to the World " is now required reading at Victoria University in New Zealand. " Overstanding Rastafari " by renowned Jamaican author and poet Yasus Afari, continues to set a new precedent internationally and is rapidly becoming a 'collectors' item' around the globe. Rastafari began not simply as a form of countercultural expression or fringe religious belief. It involved a fight for justice by disenfranchised Jamaicans, peasant laborers and the urban underemployed alike, in what was then a British colony.

The book explores how the Rastafari philosophy is being taken on by a new generation – names like Addis Pablo, Jah9, Donisha Prendergast, Yaadcore, Kabaka Pyramid and I-Nation.

While artistes like Chronixx, Protoje, Kabaka Pyramid and other conscious chanters are big hits with middle-class people here, don't mistake that for acceptance of Rastafari cultural values. independence in Jamaica and the Rastafari movement. In , Jamaican society celebrated 50 years since the attainment of inde pendence. There were gala celebrations and numerous commen taries about the achievements of Jamaican society after 50 years. This meeting on the commemoration of Coral Gardens falls within.
