Exploring the history of Dancehall in the 1970's
The Entertainment Celebrity Link
Dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late 1970s. Initially dancehall was a more sparse version of reggae than the roots style, which had dominated much of the 1970s. In the mid-1980s, digital instrumentation became more prevalent, changing the sound considerably, with digital dancehall (or "ragga") becoming increasingly characterized by faster rhythms. (The word "bashment", a term originating in the 90's, was used to describe a particularly good dance; for example "to go to a

Jane Elliott is an American former schoolteacher, recognized most prominently as an anti-racism activist and educator. She is also known as a feminist and LGBT activist. Elliott created the famous "blue-eyed/brown-eyed" exercise, first
done with third-grade school children in the 1960s, which later became the basis for her career in diversity training.
The exercise was conducted the day following Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The purpose of the exercise was
to try to teach her students the effects of being a minority. Her exercise, and the subsequent controversy, became the basis for the television documentaries Eye of the Storm (1970) and A Class Divided (1985). Elliott was also recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education and many other awards.

.In 'Washington, DC, Roscoe was known as very civic active and political savy spouse. Sheappeared frequently on Television and was often mentioned in the Press. Roscoe like Ron, prior to coming to Washington, DC was passionate about ending the violent, oppressive practice of Apartheid. In the 1970's, Oakland and Berkeley, San Francisco's East Bay, led the way of the anti-apartheid movement. On college campuses across America students began to push for the end to this South African policy. In the 1980's Annette Lantos, wife of Congressman Tom Lantos (deceased of California) invited Roscoe to join the Congressional Human Rights Caucus' Committee of 21. This bi-partisan caucus of the United States House of Representative was organized by Congressman Lantos, who was a survivor of the Camps during the Holocaust. The Committee of 21 is a program for women Members of the House and Senate and wives of Members of Congress. The Committee encourages the women to "adopt" victims of human rights abuse. The caucus first focused on the ill-treatment of Jews within the Soviet Union. When the Human Right Caucus directed its attention to South Africa, it became involved inthecase of Murphy Morobe a black South African ANC leader in the fight against apartheid. Roscoe was asked to "adopt" Mr. Morobe through the Committee of 21. Mr. Morobe and two of his colleagues in South African prisons escaped and sought refuge at the U.S, Consulate in Johannesburg.
Did you know... North American governments
Spend over 51 BILLION dollars a year on the War on Drugs?
Yet these same governments do very little to treat addiction and the "poverty of the spirit" that engenders this addiction.
Dr. Bruce K. Alexander is a Canadian psychologist who believes that society is drowning in addictions, to alchohol, drug use and a thousand other habits. He maintains the reason for this is a growing disconnect as people around are torn from the close ties to family, culture, and traditional spirituality. Alexendar says this rift and lack of social integration has destroyed what used to constitute the normal fabric of societal life.
For many, addiction serves as a substitute for the connectedness for which they long and which provides context and meaning for their lives.
Alexander believes because societal determinants are so much more powerful that individual ones, that addiction is much more a social problem than an individual disorder. This is why he feels that the War on Drugs is so wrong-headed.
Alexander's book, The Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of the Spirit presents a new look at the nature of addiction, how society should view addicts, and more effective treatments for addiction.
Bruce Alexander is a psychologist and Professor Emeritus at Simon Fraser University, where he has worked since 1970. His primary research interest has been the psychology of addiction. He is best known in the UK for the "Rat Park" experiments, which helped to demonstrate the falsity of the outworn belief that simple exposure to narcotic drugs can cause addiction.
