"History teaches us that unity is strength, and cautions us to submerge and overcome our differences in the quest for common goals, to strive, with all our combined strength, for the path to true African brotherhood and unity."

In 1930, the 225th King in the Solomonic line of Kings, H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I was crowned as King of Kings, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God and Light of the World with his royal Empress Woizero Menen, and sparked a global movement starting in the island of Jamaica named for one of his pre-coronation titles, Ras Tafari. 

The global movement of Ras Tafari sparked an explosion in the creative industries to include a revolution in organic agriculture and “I-tal” living. 

The creatives who embraced this global movement of Ras Tafari and are called by the name of Ras Tafari (hereinafter referred to as Ras Tafari) have determined to come together and wish to respond to the music, arts and agricultural development challenges facing the Jamaica, the Caribbean, Africa and the Diaspora, particularly in regard to the cultural exchange between Africa, Jamaica and other Caribbean islands
