In honor of Bob Marley's 75th birthday and the 40th anniversary of Redemption Song, a powerful tribute that allows longtime fans, and budding activists looking for exemplary heroes in a time of political turmoil, to reflect on the beliefs of one of the most transformative political singer-songwriters of the 20th century.

Exploring the many definitions of redemption, from reclamation to forgiveness to the hope of reconciliation, this powerful tribute to Bob Marley's activist beliefs explores the fine line between seeking justice in the short term and remaining focused and optimistic about the future. Redemption offers a safe space to reflect on our current political moment nationally and globally without getting lost in an overwhelming sea of headlines--and reclaims an important figure whose powerful messages and legacy as a freedom fighter have been obscured over time.

Filled with quotes from his speeches, interviews, and writings, and thoughtfully edited by his daughter Cedella Marley, this collection delivers the real Bob Marley to us at a time when we truly need him.In honor of Bob Marley's 75th birthday and the 40th anniversary of Redemption Song, a powerful tribute that allows longtime fans, and budding activists looking for exemplary heroes in a time of political turmoil, to reflect on the beliefs of one of the most transformative political singer-songwriters of the 20th century.
