520 |a "In Jah kingdom, Bedasse tells the story of how a group of Rastafarians led by Ras Bupe Karudi worked with scholars, activists, and politicians in the 1970s and 1980s to make pilgrimage and repatriation to Africa a possibility. Years of activism resulted in the Tanzanian government granting legal status to returning Rastafarians in 1985, and even giving the movement's adherents land in 1989. In time, friction between migrants and the struggling Tanzanian state would ultimately make repatriation impractical, but the decades of concerted activism and outreach offer a fascinating window into the political and intellectual ferment of the African diaspora during the era of decolonization"--  |c Provided by publisher
