We Close Black History Month With @ZiggyMarley & The Melody Makers’ “Black My Story”


With Black History Month and Reggae Month coming to an end, we’ve decided to close with a throwback! Going back to the year 1989, we look back at Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers’Black My Story (Not History)“. Produced by Chris Franz, Glen Rosentein, Tina Weymouth, and Ziggy Marley, this was released through Rita Marley Music and Virgin Records. In the song, Ziggy speaks on the progression of the black man and what they’ve contributed to the World, and encourages listeners to embrace it and not be fooled by the whitewashed version. He also names many African nations and promotes African Glory. The track is also the opener for the group’s 4th Album, “One Bright Day” which was also released in 1989.

To close off, here’s a quote from the late Nelson Mandela.

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
