Today is Nesta Robert Marley’s Birthstrong, the greatest and most influential reggae artist of all time. Bob Marley was born February 6, 1945 in Nine Mile, Jamaica and died May 11, 1981, in Miami, Florida.
Big up former Toronto Mayor Art Eggleton who in 1991 declared February 6th as Bob Marley day in Toronto.
Big up current Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who has re-declared February 6th as Bob Marley Day in Toronto. And big up each and everyone who will take time out to acknowledge February as African History Month in Canada and the United States.
