Three decades after his death, Bob Marley is still a legendary superstar, whose funky roots reggae is embraced not just by baby boomers, but young people everywhere.
In Reaching for Zion, Marley’s beautiful and charismatic granddaughter Donisha Prendergast takes us on a quest to understand the roots of her grandfather’s extraordinary legacy. She has long been committed to his dream of One Love and his Longing for Zion, a home where people can control their own destiny and achieve their own spiritual freedom. But when she looks at the world around her, all she sees is injustice and suffering.
Is Bob Marley’s legacy even possible? Can we ever reach the Promised Land? Along the way, Donisha learns more about the inspiration for Marley’s music and uncovers Rastafari’s intriguing and unlikely connection to Judaism.
Featuring performances by Alpha Blondy, Idan Rachael, Johnny Osbourne, Mendy Cahan, Gili Yalo, Billy Mysic, Rasta Kura and Protege.
