In 1920s, Marcus Garvey said "Look to Africa, when a black king shall be crowned, for the day of deliverance is at hand". It is this ideology eventually led to the growth of Rastafarian. Though Marcus Garvey was not directly involved in Rastafarianism, he is considered to be one of the religion's prophet. Marcus Garvey teachings on black empowerment, black unity and Africa being black people's rightful home served as the foundation for the Rastafarian movement. By the 1920s, he had almost had a million followers and one could say Rastafarianism developed as a branch of overall black empowerment.
