Peace Portrait One: Bob Marley

The United Nations' Peace Medal of the Third World was given to Bob Marley (1945-1981) in 1978. The late singer and songwriter earned this distinction for his courageous work appealing for justice and peace during a time of political unrest in Jamaica, his home country. His influence grew world-wide as he continued to speak out about and sing a message of world unity and racial equality.
