Riassunto:

Fittingly for one who would offer his "songs of freedom" as redemption for Jamaica's black "sufferers, " Bob Marley's mixed ancestry embodied his homeland's tormented colonial past. Born Nesta Robert Marley in St. Ann, Jamaica, in 1945, Marley was the son of a British naval officer - a member of the ruling class - and a black teenage girl. Growing up with his mother in rural Jamaica, Marley was well acquainted with the harsh life of poverty endured by native blacks, and at a very early age began expressing through music his sadness and hope for a better life. By the time of his death at age 36, Marley was known as "The Prophet, " the most revered figure in Africa and Jamaica and a political and spiritual hero to the rest of the world. His unique lyrical message, a powerful mix of peace and rebellion founded in his Rastafari faith, combined with the hypnotic rhythm of the Jamaican-based music called reggae, had catapulted Marley into international superstardom and transformed him into an enduring legend who continues to inspire fans of all ages and backgrounds.

Sinossi: Offers a revealing look at the turbulent short life of reggae musician Bob Marley and his generations-long musical legacy that would become pivotal to the promotion of reggae music to the forefront of popular music.
