Africa Institute of South Africa

Undoubtedly, reggae music and the Rastafari culture have played a significant role in drawing the world’s attention to the real issues of the African liberation movement and have provided Africa and its Diaspora a channel for building self-identity, consciousness, resilience, liberation and ‘One Love’.

The Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA), in collaboration with the City of Tshwane and the High Commission of Jamaica, is hosting an ambassadorial forum on the ‘Role of Reggae Music in the African Liberation Struggle’, on 28 February 2012 in Pretoria.

The forum will be held under the patronage of Her Excellency, Norma Taylor Roberts, High Commissioner of Jamaica to South Africa.
