Today In African History: Bob Marley

Today, 70 years ago, marks the birth of this peace-loving Rastafarian musician. One man who has brought resonating words of love, peace and unity through strings, rhythm and vocal talent.

Bob Marley always sang about awakening consciousness; either through enabling us to see that racial tensions lack peaceful meaning, that love as a religion cures the worlds ailment, or that the unification of Africa is what we need to move forward in development.
