Bob Marley Day

(Nesta Robert) Bob Marley was born today in 1945, in Nine Mile, Saint Ann, Jamaica, and died on May 11, 1981, in Miami, Florida. It goes without saying that he was and remains one of the most influential musicians, artists, political figures, in 20th century black diasporic and global history.  It's almost hard to believe that nearly 30 years have passed since he did.  In tribute, here are a few videos of his work, which, like his words and spirit, continue to inspire, enlighten, empower, and entertain.
