Bob Marley
At Harvard Stadium, Boston, July 21, 1979. Photographer unknown.

โ€œIf anybody can cut through the special American brand of cynicism and make people feel good because they are one in thousands instead of omnipotent, it will be Bob Marley,โ€ wrote the review in the Harvard Crimson covering Marley’s appearance at the Amandla Festival (which you can watch in full here) held at that school’s stadium in summer 1979. This image seems to bear that out.
