I had an eye-opening conversation with Atlanta-based organizer for social justice, Ben Speight. 

  • Ben tells how and why he fell in love with Reggae.
  • He talks about reggae as the soundtrack to movements of social change over the years. 
  • He discusses the history of Ska and Roots Reggae, highlighting the political content. 
  • He draws comparisons between Motown and music from the Rocksteady and UK Lover’s eras. 
  • Hear his thoughts on dancehall, Cali reggae, and the new school of roots rockers coming out of Jamaica.
