Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. King has become a national icon in the history of modern American liberalism.

The Rastafarians are a California-based reggae group founded by Jamaican natives Michael Ashley aka Haile Maskel (bass and lead vocals) and Patrick Houchen aka Shaka Man (drums and lead vocals), and Californian Herb Daily (guitar) in Santa Cruz, California in 1980. Other talented members included Constantine "Vision" Walker who had previously worked with both Bob Marley and Rita Marley, and noted MC Tony "Moses" Wright, who performed and toured with Spearhead. Some members of the band had also worked with Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus. The ensemble released the critically acclaimed album "Orthodox" in 1981

Pretty much the only US roots band outfit of any note in that era.
