A Super Funky Day Of Tribute: Dr. Tony Martin, Donald Byrd, Bob Marley


Today Drs. H8, Mark Bolden, Quito Swan and Raymond Winbush joined the program to pay tribute to passing of Dr. Tony Martin and Donald Byrd and to commemorate the birthday this week of Bob Marley.  We re-aired some of the 1993 Gil Noble program Like It Is with Drs. Martin and John Henrik Clarke (full audio below) which dealt with Martin’s publication The Jewish Onslaught itself a response to the charges of “anti-semitism” Martin suffered for his class lectures’ inclusion of the involvement of Jews in the enslavement of African people.  We also discussed Martin’s seminal research into the life of Marcus Garvey and Amy Ashwood Garvey, as well as, his prolific research into the Caribbean and broader African world.  We did this and more while also paying tribute to the pioneering works of Donald Byrd and Bob Marley.
