True or False?

Reggae star Bob Marley’s father was white.

TRUE! Bob Marley was born in 1945 to Cedella Booker, who is black, and Norval Marley, who was Caucasian. Norval had little contact with his son and died before Bob became a superstar. Bob Marley’s own end was tragic. A foot he injured playing soccer was diagnosed with cancer in 1977. He refused to have it amputated because of his Rastafarian beliefs. By 1981, the cancer had spread to his brain, and he died in Miami.
