Bob Marley and the Wailers were born on the island of Jamaica, a small land with deep roots in Africa. Slavery was a recent folk memory for the island's residents, and twentieth-century racial injustice was all too real. This rich and troubled culture gave birth to the music of Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Their music sang on behalf of justice and integrity. It gave a voice to people the world had forgotten. And it made white people not only pay attention-but sing along!

Bob Marley may have died, but people are still hearing his songs. As he once said, "My music will live forever." In this book, you can read about Bob Marley's life. Discover what inspired him to make a difference. Learn about his legacy of hope that continues to live on in his wife and children, and in those who continue to love his music.
