Seen in this photo is Bob Marley practicing his dribbling skills on the field. Aside from his odes and elegies to the people of Jamaica and the reggae cool he brought to the world, Marley spoke in great love of the future of his country. One of Marley’s childhood home, Trench Town, was an infamous city known for its war torn streets and rudies – young boys who always got into trouble with the law. Football and music were the ways that Marley hoped to inspire the youth and keep them off the streets.
