MEDINA, OH – Bayer Mack, a nationally-published Black American entertainment journalist, record executive and award-winning documentary filmmaker has his epic two-part independent documentary BLACK SEEDS: THE HISTORY OF AFRICANS IN AMERICA featured on Amazon.com Prime.
The powerful 70-minute film that is available now as Book I of the documentary uses dramatic historical reenactments, rare period illustrations, and an original music score to explain the socioeconomic reasons behind the transatlantic slave trade.
It reveals how the institution of chattel slavery took root in the United States and the bloody resistance Blacks waged every step of the way. It is a tale 400 years in the making.
Eventually, he fell in with a circle of soul and funk stars, hanging out in recording studios with them and ultimately coming under the mentorship of Roger Troutman, who enlisted Smith as his driver, then as a member of his band Zapp, all the while encouraging Smith to record his own original music. Starting in the late '80s, Smith worked as a recording engineer on Troutman-affiliated studio sessions for albums such as Zapp V, Shirley Murdock's Let There Be Love!, and Roger's Bridging the Gap.
He went on to release numerous albums and capped off his first decade with Jerri Curl Muzic, featuring appearances from Shirley Murdock, Bar-Kays, and Kurtis Blow, as well as an update of the Floaters' "Float On." From Soul Prescription in 2010 through Good Muzic in 2019, Robb's pace remained steady the next decade, supplemented with natural diversions into gospel and holiday material.
