There’s a scene in the new documentary Rasta: A Soul’s Journey where the film’s hero, Donisha Prendergast, asks a Toronto Rasta man if he could imagine a world without Rastafari.
So, when faced with the same question, Prendergast says, “It would be an unimaginable place because I look at what Rastafari has offered to the world… Rastafari is my world. That’s the culture I grew up in, so I don’t want to imagine that.”
