Chairperson of the Board

Niambe McIntosh

Over the last several years Niambe McIntosh, the youngest child of the revolutionary musician and activist Peter Tosh, has stepped up to the mantle to carry on her father’s message and legacy. A renaissance woman, she serves many roles including the head of the Peter Tosh Estate and Brand; Managing Member of Tosh Holdings LLC; Board Chairperson for the Peter Tosh Foundation Ltd.; and President of PT Capital LLC.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, McIntosh has come to call both home. She received a Bachelors Degree in Engineering and enjoyed a successful career in the field during her early 20’s, however her passion for working with kids of all ages led her to switch gears and become an educator. She spent nearly a decade working in the Boston Public School System teaching mathematics and special education to high school 9th-12th graders.

During this time, Niambe was instrumental in the planning and development of the Peter Tosh Museum which opened in 2016 and is a national landmark edifice in Kingston, Jamaica dedicated to the preservation of her father’s legacy. Additionally, Mcintosh and her family founded the Peter Tosh Foundation in 2017 to serve as the vehicle for the realization of her father’s dream.

Niambe’s fire for advocacy also stems from a family crisis in February of 2017 in which her brother Jawara McIntosh – musician and cannabis activist – was brutally attacked while incarcerated for cannabis possession. She moved to New Jersey to be by his side during his near death experience which compelled her to raise awareness of the dire conditions faced by prisoners and the need for prison reform in the United States.

Beyond family and business, McIntosh also serves on the Board of Directors for the non-profit cannabis advocacy organization, Minorities For Medical Marijuana (M4MM), which focuses on public policy, business development, patient education and social justice as it pertains to minority issues in the cannabis industry. McIntosh is a spokesperson for the organization’s “Project Clean Slate” which provides record expungements and wrap-around services for individuals with cannabis arrests.

Niambe McIntosh is unquestionably cut from the same cloth as her father, yet not living in his shadows… Instead, she has developed her own identity while breathing new life into his.

Akayda McIntosh

Akayda McIntosh is the oldest child of Peter Tosh’s eldest, Stephen McIntosh and is very proud to carry on the responsibility of her lineage. Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, the granddaughter of this reggae icon has been instrumental in keeping the legacy of her grandfather alive in music, business and philanthropy. Believing her grandfather is truly a prophet, Akayda is inspired by his music and his words. Peter Tosh played a major role in music and culture and he remains relevant and continues to impact society. As such, Akayda shares his belief in ‘equal rights and justice’ for all and is committed to share that with the world.

Akayda earned her Bachelors of Education from York University and her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Waterloo, both in Canada. After completing her studies, she spent time travelling around Europe, teaching various studies. In 2013, she officially assumed integral roles in the operations of the Peter Tosh Estate. Currently she serves as the Executive Assistant for the Peter Tosh Estate and also serves as Secretary for both PT Capital, which manages Peter Tosh’s cannabis brand and the Peter Tosh Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the estate.

Akayda McIntosh works to expand the Peter Tosh brand to new audiences by travelling the world and sharing the vision and legacy of her grandfather. She aims to connect people, particularly children, of varied cultures and back-grounds to promote inclusion and diversity. In 2016, Akayda worked with her family and partners to open the official Peter Tosh Museum in New Kingston, Jamaica. It is Akayda’s mission to have The Peter Tosh Museum, the Tosh brand and her grandfather’s music serve as catalytic agents for disseminating Peter Tosh’s beliefs to the world.

Akayda’s love for fashion and media serve as the foundation and impetus for projects that she hopes to bring to light now and in the future. She is truly honored to not only carry the “Tosh” name, more so, she is honored to carry the legacy of her grandfather.

Glenn Toby

Glenn’s story begins in Brooklyn, New York. As a teen coming up in the late 1970s, Glenn earned his early music credit as a pioneer of Hip Hop culture. In his 20s, Glenn landed a corporate job which he juggled alongside music production because it afforded him the opportunity to execute some of his childhood goals by investing in a Queens Village recording studio.

Glenn’s roots in the music industry proved to be a pivotal stepping stone to his next career move. The Book Bank Foundation, which he founded in 1998, was Glenn’s way of giving back to the place where he started. He wanted to share the confidence and insight that reading gave him, with those who were enduring rough times and who had been displaced from their homes. To date, the BBF has served over 175,000 children nationwide and contributed over 520,000 hours of community service with tutoring, alternative education solutions and career development services to Atlanta Shelters, Shelter from the Streets and Hero Awards.

In 2003, Glenn began his sports management career. He joined forces with Alonzo Shavers in 2005 to create Infinite Sports Technology (IST). Their firm managed and advised over 50 professional athletes including Olympian Samyr Laine, football cornerback Asante Samuel, Don King and numerous others.

Over the years, he has continued to serve as a guest lecturer on the speaking circuit of such universities as Harvard, Princeton, Duke, North Carolina Central as well as social institutions, associations and non-profit organizations. In 2005, Harvard University endowed Glenn with the “Man of the Year” award. Glenn has accepted numerous “Leader” awards, but the most humbling was an honorary doctorate degree awarded by Nepal’s Kathmandu International University. Bishop Luke Vandari, Ph.D. said of Glenn as he presented the degree: “His compassionate heart is like that of Martin Luther King and Mother Teresa.” Glenn Toby continues his work as an author, philanthropist, lecturer and talent agent.

Toby joined the Peter Tosh Foundation since 2019. He brings decades of non-profit management and business experience to the Foundation. His years of service to communities around the globe lend themselves to the Foundation which strives for increased social impact in the United States and the world.
