The incomparable freedom fighter and Reggae musical messenger Peter Tosh.

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.

In this episode, we will take a look back at the "Stepping Razor" the "Mystic Man" himself Reggae legend Peter Tosh.

On Friday, September 11, 1987, Tosh, a founding member of The Wailer Reggae band, along with Bunny Wailer and Bob Marley, was assassinated in a murder that is still shrouded in mystery today.

The infamous Red X Tapes documentary gives important details and historical context to the complex and complicated man who was born Winston Hubert McIntosh.

Tosh was was a potent voice for the downtrodden who vociferously voiced his often biting criticisms of injustice not only in his music but in interviews as well. The following classic 1984 California concert illustrates the powerful stage presence the "Mystic Man" had.
