Jackson makes special note of Tafari’s multifunctionality.

She adds, “His dreadlocks are very essential since many youngsters all over the world are subjected to prejudice because to how they wear their hair. Tafari is intended to bring awareness to these children and encourage them to be proud of who they are. In his remarks, Tafari stresses the importance of not discriminating against people because of their appearance and that everyone should be proud of who they are no matter where they’re from.

“I was really touched by the tale of a youngster in Jamaica who was banned from school simply because he had locks. This is why I decided Tafari should wear locks,” she added.
