Antidoping to Celebrate Afro-Mexican Legacy in Concert

SAN DIEGO – The Mexican reggae band Antidoping, founder of the “Razteca” movement, will celebrate Aug. 18 at San Diego’s WorldBeat Center the legacy of the defender of African-American rights, Marcus Garvey, and Afro-Mexican history.

Makeda Dread, director of the WorldBeat Center, told Efe that with the visit of Antidoping they seek to highlight the mix of African and Mexican cultures as a way to combat prejudices and contribute to the coming together of indigenous, European and African cultures.

“Besides Antidoping, the Razteca movement in Mexico features such artists as Alika, Israel Vibrations, Alpha Blondy and The Skatalies, which have come to Tijuana and San Diego and form part of the musical landscape for young people of the border region,” Dread said.

In the tribute to Garvey, born in Jamaica but who founded in the United States the Universal Negro Improvement Association and who led a movement urging people of African descent to return to their ancestral lands, his separatist ideas will not be emphasized, Dread said.

“When he returned to the United States in 1916 after traveling extensively in Latin America, Garvey said that African-Americans should be proud of their race. This message, with its emphasis on inclusion, is what the reggae of Antidoping celebrates and that’s why we’re showcasing it,” Dread said. EFE
