Greeting Sisters and Brothers, and all readers and viewers of the Black Star News, to our fourth episode of Black Star News' "From the Art Archive."

From the Art Archive features music, poetry, and any artistic expression created by artists of African descent. Because of the strong Pan-African leanings of the Black Star News, we showcase artists who exhibit that sensibility--many of whom will not be household names in the Hollywood and MTV mold.

We are dedicating this installment to the memory of Reggae icon Frederick Nathaniel ‘Toots’ Hibbert, who died on September 11, 2020, of complications from COVID-19 at the age of 77.

The legendary Reggae superstar was one of the first major Jamaican artists who helped paved the way for others to follow like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Jacob Miller, Gregory Issacs, Dennis Brown, and others.

The following documentary entitled, "Toots Hibbert & The Birth of Reggae," tells a part of the story of this musical master from Jamaica.
