Happy Birthday, Bob Marley!

Bob Marley

Today is Bob Marley’s birthday. He died in 1981 of cancer, but if he’d lived he would be turning 68 years old today.

In his day Bob Marley was more than just a reggae musician. He became an international superstar, and an ambassador for peace and tolerance. He made music that united people of different races and backgrounds, and especially later in his life spoke out for equality and justice for all.

If you can, watch Marley, the 2012 documentary produced by his son Ziggy and wife Rita.
