About Event

In February 2005, the Bob Marley Foundation and the Rita Marley Foundation in partnership with the African Union Commission, UNICEF Ethiopia and the Ethiopian Ministry of Culture and Tourism presented AFRICA UNITE, an event in commemoration of the 60th Birthday of reggae icon and human rights influencer, Robert “Bob” Nesta Marley. Dr. Desta Meghoo, coordinated the landmark event in 2005 which included a conference, art exhibition and a peaceful concert on Meskel Square among other activities.

Director, Stephanie Black documented the energy of the event in the film AFRICA UNITE: A CELEBRATION OF BOB MARLEY’S VISION, with producers Dr. Rita Marley, Cedella Marley and Danny Glover. The film is “…electrifying on-stage performances by the Marley Brothers, a soundtrack brimming with Bob Marley studio classics, appearances by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador/actor Danny Glover, world music sensation Angelique Kidjo, Bob Marley’s (late) Mother, Mrs. Booker, and Princess Mariam Senna Asfa Wossen, grand daughter of HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I…”.

Dr. Desta, curator of Africa Unite 2020 states, "The promotion of peace and African unity continues and we are happy to partner with the Alliance to share Marley's musical message..."
