Resumo

Neste ensaio eu analiso as políticas articuladas a duas práticas corporais observadas por grande parte dos homens rastafari jamaicanos: o cultivo de dreadlocks e barbas. Começo pela história política dos dreadlocks e barbas, mostrando como eles foram conectados a noções de africanismo e à vida social dos textos bíblicos no Movimento Rastafari. Eu argumento que estes modos de cuidado com o corpo traduzem políticas anticoloniais rastafari que visam desafiar e criticar estéticas e modos de existência coloniais e pós-coloniais na ilha caribenha, o que dá ensejo a reflexões sobre pertencimento, soberania e africanidade diaspórica.
