Bob Marley was a hero because he was the first person who spoke out about injustice to the poor in his music and got the world to really listen. He sings in his songs about redemption of the poor. He spoke out about the injustice to the poor and how the political system was corrupt. He got people of every race to start looking to the large and powerful countries to start asking questions and demanding a change. He wrote these songs and sang them to make money to feed himself and his mother. There is just a little history but there is so much more.
