Program Description

Event Details

Bob was much more than a famous Jamaican musician.   He was a man with deep religious convictions who rose from poverty to become a global musical and cultural icon – a pop prophet.  Though he survived an assassination attempt, he ultimately died of cancer at age 36.  Using performance and interview clips we’ll trace the arc of Bob’s career from “One Love” and “Jamming” to” “I Shot The Sheriff” and “Redemption Song.”  Bob Marley is the world’s most popular reggae artist beloved for his universal hymns of freedom.
