Honoring the genre’s rich history while celebrating its current artistes, this commemorative day was launched on July 1, 1994. International Reggae Day was founded by Andrea Davis of Jamaica Arts Holdings, who was inspired by a speech made from famed South African leader Winnie Mandela, during her visit to Kingston in 1991."
