This man literally changed my life. But with lyrics teaching of Love, Peace, and Culture, how could he not change anyone's life? Bob Marley was a Freedom Fighter, an activist, and an advocator of Peace and Equality. One that fought against the power of Babylon, also known as the Western world. He fought for our Freedom, so that our African brothers and sisters living in in the Western world wouldn't stray away from our original culture, that African Heritage that so many of us have lost over the centuries of being in Babylon. The culture that has gone astray after being oppressed for 400 years and counting. I can honestly say that he inspired me, he helped me become the person that I am today. His lyrics assisted me in becoming more in touch with myself and my African roots. His passionate words that expressed the importance of staying in tune with our heritage and recognizing that we, as an African people have a responsibility to fulfill. Bob Marley was also one of the inspirations for my Crowing Glory- My Locs . They signify my rebellion against the Babylon System.
"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery; none but ourselves can free our mind." - Bob Marley
