Reggae For A Cause
The majority of Jamaicans are descendants of African slaves who where captured and brought to the island in the 17th and 18th century.
The purpose of “Reggae For A Cause” is to pave the way for poor descendants of slaves to make a journey back to Africa to learn more about their roots, the culture of their ancestors and see the places where they were imprisoned before they were crammed together on the slave ships and brought across the Atlantic Ocean to America and the Caribbean. It will help them to define who they are and reinforce their identity and dignity.
For the beginning the first destination will be Ghana in West Africa to visit places like “Cape Coast Castle”, “Elmina Castle” and “Fort Christiansborg” also named as “Door of no return”.
Step by step it is planned to extend the project throughout the Caribbean and more African countries where once black people were taken from and forced into captivity.
