Film: Marley's Africa Road Trip


Last year, Ziggy, Rohan and Robbie Marley travelled to Africa to film Marley Africa Roadtrip — a Discovery Channel documentary that follows the brothers' motorcycle trip through the continent (although it appears from the trailer that they're only in South Africa) in search of "their father's dream of a unified Africa:"

In 1980, thirty years before the brother's trip, their father Bob Marley performed at the Independence Concert in Zimbabwe. Ziggy was with him on that trip and it is something that he reflects on regularly, "... What we're trying to do is keep one of the dreams that my father and the forefathers of African liberation had in mind, which is for real African unity." (DC)
