NBAF Global with Third World and Maxi Priest

  • Part of the globe this year’s event focuses on: Jamaica
  • Year Third World formed in Jamaica: 1973
  • How the former lead singer, the late William “Bunny Rugs” Clarke, described their sound to Billboard in 1992: “Strictly a reggae band, no. Definitely a reggae band, yes.”
  • How they’re filling Clarke’s cap: New lead singer AJ Brown takes over on hits including “Now That We Found Love” and “Try Jah Love.”
  • How you know they won’t take advantage of the keys they were given to the cities of Atlanta and Key West: They were awarded with the United Nations Peace Medal.
  • Where you first may have heard Maxi Priest and his reggae fusion sound: on his Billboard #1 hit, “Close to You”
  • Duet you may have tried to turn into a tri-et every time it came on the radio: “Set the Night to Music,” his top-10 hit with Roberta Flack
  • Proof that reggae runs in his family: his cousin, Jacob Miller, was the frontman for legendary reggae band Inner Circle
  • Also appearing: award-winning vocalist Julie Dexter, who fuses jazz, bossa nova, reggae, and soul

National Black Arts Festival

Maya Angelou, Spike Lee, Gladys Knight, and the O’Jays: these are just a handful of the many artists who’ve descended upon National Black Arts Festival since its inception in 1988. The festival has invited each of them to appear due to its mission—to celebrate the contributions of artists of African descent then, in turn, inspire its guests to create art of their own. And the inspiration is palpable, from jazz concerts led by Wynton Marsalis to literary readings, dance performances, theatrical productions, and visual art displays throughout the year.
