           PAGE 82                           Where is the Genuine Respect for Reggae Culture?

                                                                                                                  By Dutty Bookman

           The Reggae Revival is an arts-based movement that emerged out of Jamaica nearly half a decade ago.
           So why do relatively few people really know what it’s about? Why has the media not covered visual,

           performing, literary, culinary and spiritual artists with the same fervor with which they cover musical

           artists? For the Reggae Revival movement to have maximum influence, we must unite in purpose and
           focus more on respecting the culture that drives this great and impactful music called reggae.
