Ras Marcus is a Jamaican-born, respected and outspoken Rasta elder of the Rasta Movement. He grew up with Emmanuel Charles Edward (Prince Emmanuel), founder of the Bobo Shanti sub-section of Rastafari which emerged in the 1950s, and Dr. Vernon Carrington (Prophet Gad), founder of the Twelve Tribes of Israel Rastafari Movement which emerged in 1968.
Ras Marcus has made a tremendous contribution to the Rasta Movement over the years and still continues to do so as an elder. His internet writings on the movement have exposed readers to perspectives and first hand experiences that encourage a deeper understanding of the Rasta movement and its African essence. He is also well-known for his contributions to the Rastafari Elders and Liberation Feelings CDs which are classic compilations that mix chants, Nyabinghi drumming and reasonings on the Rasta Movement.
