Further – reaction on the death of Howell Bramble

In response (or in addition) to our Tribute – the professional life of Howell R. Bramble, Montserrat born Andrew Skerritt, Assistant Professor of Journalism, Florida A&M University, sends in the following, remembering Howell Bramble.

I just wanted to add my voice in tribute to Howell Bramble. I owe my journalism career to Howell. He gave me my first opportunity to write and get published, and I have not looked back since.

I wrote about football for the Montserrat Times beginning around 1981. As a young man struggling to find purpose, I found it in my longhand written articles submitted for the weekly edition. My most memorable article was “That dirty dozen” about the rebel West Indian cricketers who violated the embargo and played in apartheid South Africa.

I will always remember Howell’s distinct broadcast style as he read the sports news on Radio Antilles. His spirit and legacy will live on through the many others who he influenced.

His legacy will also live on in my work and the work of my journalism students. He made a mark that will never be erased.

Andrew Skerritt is also the author of Ashamed to Die: Silence, Denial and the AIDS Epidemic in the South.
