When Bob Marley Went to Africa

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Arts & Culture, Film, History, Music

The film opens on the Ghanaian coast at the remnants of a slave post, the camera then pans over the Atlantic, finally settling on the green hills of rural Jamaica (Marley’s birthplace Nine Mile) from where it picks up Bob Marley’s story, thus cementing a link between the continent and its new world diaspora.
