Marcus Garvey, who founded an organization called the Universal Negro Improvement Association in 1930s Jamaica, gave rise to rastafarianism (UNIA). The organization's goal was to restore blacks to the lands that had been taken from them.

In essence, they hold that they are one of the lost tribes of Israel who were brought to Babylon (Jamaica) as slaves and sold into slavery, and that they must return to Zion, which they believe to be Ethiopia.There are no established congregations, no paid clergy, and no established dogma in the movement. In the early stages of its development, Rastafarians in Jamaica faced discrimination.

But when Rastafari gained popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, thanks to the influence of Reggae music and Rastafarian personalities like Bob Marley, it grew more and more mainstream. Since then, rastafarianism in Jamaica has evolved into a celebration of the country's uniqueness and is no longer stigmatized.
