One of the 20th century’s most charismatic and challenging performers, Bob Marley’s (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) renown now transcends the role of reggae luminary: he is regarded as a cultural icon who implored his people to know their history “coming from the root of King David, through the line of Solomon,” as he sang on Blackman Redemption.
