Jah Love, Greetings and Welcome to all our readers and advertizers, old and new. This publication is a "Reggaezine for 21st Century Minds" and as such, is livicated to "Teaching Youth The Truth About Their Rootz & Kulcha". It is our mission to bring you information and viewpoints from a Rootz viewpoint and perspective which are all too often not broadcast and not published anywhere else. Traditionally our April/May publication is a Unity/Liberation issue in recognition of the establishment of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) at Africa Hall, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in 1963 on May 25 -a date which is observed annually as African Liberation Day in Black communities worldwide.

Rootz and Kulcha has been described as an oasis; a shelter from the storm and a beacon of light for zion train passengers. Our advertiser's recognize that the architects of Nation Building look to these pages to locate the products, services and nurturance necessary for strengthening ourselves, our families and our communities to achieve a Marcus Garvey master plan for the millennium. Garvey's philosophy of unity and organization will be fullfilled as long as we practice it like breathing. The fruits of this destiny will be realized, once we focus with one mind on freedom and the spiritual power it brings to move mountains .

Our purpose here at Rootz and Kulcha is also to help Reggae musicians keep their musical message real, and to ensure that Jah Music remains connected to its Afrikan Rootz and the Black Kulcha that spawned it. It is our job to keep you current with the message music and the people who create it as quickly they . Accordingly, we unapologetically publish articles that you won't find in your run-of-the-mill Reggae magazine or in so-called 'urban' magazines. We're doers and not complainers, we've channeled all our emotion into mobilizing our communities to organize, centralize, economize and industrialize.

In the spirit of Marcus Garvey and following in the foot steps of his "Negro World" newspaper, we see our role at Rootz Reggae & Kulcha as helping to create the necessary "unity in the community" so eloquently advocated by Kwame Ture in recent times; and as helping to focus our resources and efforts towards achieving our real liberation

It doesn't matter where we're from -down South, up north, east or west coast, from Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, Trinidad, Canada, England, Australia, Africa, or elsewhere, it makes no difference. When it comes down to it, we're seen just one way by some people -as Black (i.e. African). No, we're not paranoid and yes, we do have the right and responsibility to speak up and speak out against injustice, intolerance and downpression --as politically (or economically) incorrect as this may be. We're with Bob Marley, who said, "Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights"; and with Peter Tosh, who said there would be no peace without "Equal Rights & Justice". So if you can handle stimulating, thought-provoking alternative viewpoints and borderline "radical", sometimes "militant", always African-centered perspectives, get comfortable and read on....
