Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy


Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy

The Royal Parchment Scroll of Black Supremacy, written during the 1920s by a proto-Rastafari preacher, Fitz Balintine Pettersburg, is of historical and religious significance to followers of the Rastafari movement. Along with The Holy Piby, it is today recognized as one of the root documents of Rastafari thought. It is a surrealistic stream-of-consciousness polemic against the white colonial power structure, a palimpsest of Afrocentric thought.
