Celebrating Jamaica's Independence

Today marks the anniversary of Jamaica's full independence from not only the United Kingdom but the Federation of the British West Indies. In celebration of the occasion, here's a snapshot of some of the island's famous offspring.

Jamaica's most famous citizen is, of course, the late music giant and cultural ambassador Bob Marley. He pushed the island's musical home brew to unprecedented heights.
