Kansas University history professor Bill Tuttle was at reggae superstar Bob Marley’s concert at KU’s Hoch Auditorium in 1979. He remembers the event as a “spiritual experience.” Tuttle is pictured next to a photograph of Marley that was taken by Journal-World photographer Richard Gwin, who was also at the concert.

Unfortuately, the fight for social justice and equality does not exist now as it did during that time period. Lawrence has not progress in this area, evidenced by the racial/ethnic makeup of Lawrence leaders. Posting a marker as a historical reminder is pathetic. Bill Tuttle and others should be emulating Bob Marley by advocating for social justic and equality in lawrence.
