Bob Marley Movement  and Florida music festival

Bob Marley Movement of Jah people was started in 1978 by Cedella Marley Booker and her son Bob Marley.

The company was formed as a fan club for Bob Marley, but is now responsible for producing The Annual 9 Mile Music Festival and Food Drive in Miami, Florida.

Booker, who died in 2008, was a long-time resident of south Florida. She migrated there from Delaware at the insistence of Bob Marley in the late 1970s and became a community activist.

Several of her grandchildren, including Stephen Marley and Damian Marley, live in the region. She first staged the Nine Mile Music Festival in 1994, with its focus on collecting food to help the indigent in south Florida.

To date, Bob Marley Movement of Jah People has produced over 18 Festivals and has collected over 2 million canned goods as part of its efforts to give back to the community. The canned goods collected were distributed to shelters in Miami, Florida and Jamaica.

Bob Marley Movement is also responsible for managing the Bob Marley Nine Mile Tour in Jamaica. Nine Mile is the place where Bob Marley was born and spent most of his time. It’s a place that has inspired his music and where he is now laid to rest.
