Ya Man! Reggae Singer Bob Marley  once lived in Wilmington with his mother on  Tatnall Street who ran the “Roots” Jamaican music shop on Market Street. Today, a park at 24th and Tatnall is called “One Love Park” in his honor.  Outside of Jamaica, Wilmington is said to be the first place Marley called home. Before becoming a nationally recognized musician Marley worked at the former Chrysler Assembly Plant in Newark. “Nightshift,” a song Marley wrote  in 1976 is believed to have been inspired by his job as forklift driver in the parts warehouse at the plant. Marley died of cancer in 1981 at the age of 36.
