Bob Marley’s granddaughter to serve as Black History Month speaker at Hastings College


Donisha Rita Claire Prendergast, granddaughter of reggae legend Bob Marley, will explore the topic “Could You Be Love?” during Hastings College’s Black History Month keynote address scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24, in French Memorial Chapel, 800 N. Turner Ave.

An actress, model, dancer and poet, Prendergrast will use the title from one of her grandfather’s most famous songs to explore how individuals can be love in a world at war and when they themselves struggle to find balance between spiritual and material wealth.

Her travels throughout the world, from Africa & the Caribbean to India, Japan, Africa and more has exposed her to many lifestyles, perspectives and stories that has helped to influence her patience and ability to relate to a cross-section of audiences. “At the end of the day, we are all souls on a journey… bits and pieces of the same whole.”

There is no admission charge.
