    Browne's best work was on "Soap" when he succeeded Robert Guillaume (Benson!) as the butler for the Tates.

    Roscoe Brown became a character actor under the name Roscoe Lee Browne (always affecting a West Indian accent on "Good Times", "The Jeffersons","A Different World". Borican was a big deal in the 1930's. FAMU had some stellar sprinters before and after Hayes (Bob Paremore,Rey Robinson, etc.). Larry Black was a great athlete, as was Steve Riddick.

    Dr. Leroy Walker coached his share of greats at North Carolina Central. He and Ed Temple are the John Wooden's of Black college T & F. (the Eddie Robinson's). Dick Hill at Southern, Coach Moultrie at Howard, Culbreath at Central State.

    Don't forget that Bob Beamon started at North Carolina A&T, although he made no world splash whilst there.

    Third should be Lee Calhoun or Ralph Boston (with Davenport not far behind). Don't forget the Morgan State Penn Relays & Olympic stars though. Some were Jamaican.

    Hey, I'm delighted to hear that. I just like to think that we can start to get to the point where these types of distinctions are ancient history, not just history.

    If it isn't, someone ought to let them know.

    1. Moses *
    2. Hayes

    * If indeed Morehouse is a "traditionally black college"... hopefully we have now grown up and are moving further and further away from these distinctions.
