This course is an online exploration of Rastafari and concludes with a class trip to Jamaica.

The Rastafari movement was born out of the teachings of Jamaican’s first National Hero and Black Nationalist, Marcus Garvey.

After a series of online research and small group activities, we take off to Jamaica. The first stop in the class trip will take the student to St Anns Bay, the birthplace of Marcus Garvey. Students will learn about the history of Marcus Garvey and the reason behind Marcus Garvey’s “Look to Africa” Movement. They also explore the history of St Ann’s Bay and uncover for themselves the mysterious health benefits of the acclaimed ‘Fire Water.’

Price includes online lessons, 4 day/3 night (Dbl/Occupancy @ Villa in Jamaica) Airport pick up and drop off, & Rastafari Tour) *Airfare, Lunch & Dinner NOT included.
