On this day in 2012 in Kenya, Bob Marley’s grand daughter Donisha will lead a group of drummers to play drums and remember Marcus Garvey. At 1pm in the community of Waithaka near Kawangware, Donisha will pay respect to Marcus Garvey with a ONE LOVE MOMENT. This is a day when you can play a good song, sing or hum the song, hug your brother, call a friend, share knowledge, feed a stranger for Marcus Garvey. One Love Moment
