Bob Marley (1945-1981) grew up in the run-down areas west of Kingston, one of which was called Trench Town. Some homemade cardboard shacks were built on the Dungle, a settlement that doubled as the city dump. (p5)

Bob Marley would go on to dramatically change the world. One of his final songs was ‘Redemption Song’ which included the following lyrics:

‘How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look? Ooh
Some say it’s just a part of it
We’ve got to fulfill the Book.’ (p41)

You know his music…now read this graphic novel to get to know the man.
