Black History Month Love: Celebrating Bob Marley

"If you know your history, then you would know where yuh coming from?" -Bob Marley & the Wailers "Buffalo Soldier"

It's nearly three decades after the passing of Bob Marley, and his voice seems to be stronger than ever. My parents actually had us listening to music from Soca, Jazz, even Rock! However, one of my father's favorite genre's reggae just resonated in the house. I grew up listening to the likes of Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Steel Pulse to name a few. However, there was a strong connection to the music of Bob Marley. I remember my sister and I dancing n' singing the lyrics of  Bob Marley & the Wailers verbatim, pretending to be the I-Threes with mi mum right next to us! After my sister passed away, the music of Bob Marley seemed to soothe my heart n' soul with memories and I purchased every single CD, Poster, book, even went into my father's vault of records and took them with me! In the Caribbean, when we're close to an elder, we tend to give them the uncle or aunty title, so with that said, after listening to you since I was a baby, I'm sending you lots of LOVE & VIBRATIONS on your Earth Day Uncle Bob! 

Love n' Light, 

"Could You Be Loved" - Bob Marley & the Wailers
