Yet new adherents continued to convert to Rastafari despite facing adverse reactions from their fellow citizens and from their British rulers. By talking with these Rastafari elders, he seeks to understand why and how Jamaicans became Rastafari in spite of rampant discrimination, and what sustains them in their faith and identity.
