My guest is Robbie Shilliam. Robbie is a professor of political science at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he researches the political and intellectual complicities of colonialism and race in the global order. His latest book is Decolonizing Politics: An Introduction, which is just out with Polity and is a fascinating read. Robbie is also a scholar-activist of the Rastafari movement, involved in a host of activities focused on highlighting the histories and significance of the Rastafari movement for contemporary politics. Two of these projects are Rastafari in Motion, which focuses on Britain, and Iniversial Development of Rastafari, which focuses on the Baltimore and DC area.
