Dr. Ewart Brown To Release Book In November

October 30, 2019 | 31 Comments

Former Bermuda Premier Dr. Ewart Brown will be launching his new memoir Whom Shall I Fear? at the beginning of November.

Subtitled Pushing The Politics Of Change, the forthcoming book is described in a pre-publication promotional announcement as “a story rich in human and political insight that will fascinate readers interested in the global African diaspora and its continuing quest for racial justice and equality.”

The full publicity release reads: “Outspoken, accomplished, and frequently controversial, Bermudian physician and political leader Ewart Brown, MD, has been a longtime champion of racial equality, human rights, and economic and social justice. In his event-filled memoir, Whom Shall I Fear?, he shares the experiences that most shaped him and that defined his often tumultuous time in office.

“Brown’s journey began with a childhood in a politically engaged family in a Bermuda then still legally segregated. He spent his pivotal high school years in Jamaica, where he excelled in both academics and athletics, then rose to national U.S. media attention as a leader of civil rights-based student activism at Howard University.”

The announcement goes on to note that Dr. Brown practiced as a physician in inner-city Los Angeles in the 1970s and 1980s, while also finding time to become the inaugural medical director of the acclaimed musical festival Reggae Sunsplash.

“He entered electoral politics in Bermuda in the 1990s as a member of the Progressive Labour Party [PLP] and served as Premier of Bermuda from 2006 to 2010,” says the marketing release. “Today, as an elder statesman of the PLP, he remains a lightning rod for controversy in Bermuda.

“Subject to unprecedented assaults by Bermuda’s White establishment, Brown justified his signature campaign slogan, ‘Doc delivers’, by working tirelessly to redress longstanding inequalities on behalf of all Bermudians.”

The title of Whom Shall I Fear? is taken from Psalms 27:1-2: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.”

Whom Shall I Fear? will be available for sale at local bookstores next month.

    Congratulations Dr. Brown!!

    I have been waiting patiently for this day.

    Well Done.

      You need to read about how he helped to destroy Bermuda’s economy in the name of “getting even”.

      He was never about equality, it’s always about payback.

      • David Tavares says:

        You and I are not always on the some page! But, I Agree with you 100%!! Even a former PLP Premier warned us, and said “don’t blame me, Bermuda”. The man’s a joke, like a few other leaders that come to mind.

      • David Tavares says:

        And it is not over yet. The 40 thieves is mild to what’s coming. They call it social justice. And the Barclayites will be the beneficiaries, NOT the majority of those who support the PLP.

    “Doc delivers” Bwahaha. My experience is that the Doc preferred take away.

  3. wa says:

    LOL…Bermudas very own Trump.

    • hmmm says:

      Someone had to stand against the UBP.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        That’s right ! That awful group who literally created the middle class in Bermuda . When people , if they wanted , could hold 2 and 3 jobs and not because they needed to ! Good thing they’re gone , eh ?

      • Respect to those who stood up to de Status Quo, like Dr. E.F. Gordon, Dr. Roosevelt Brown and others who didnt sell their people out for social acceptance.

      • TPSN says:

        The usurped Jennifer Smith, the usurped Alex Scott, Dame Lois for sure, Freddy Wade in his quiet way, all honourable people with integrity…

      • wahoo says:

        Yeah and look where that got us….

  4. Smh says:

    Guess he’s already blown through his $1.2M windfall. Funny how Burt didn’t mention that in Monday night’s speech and the two Bermuda’s. The two Bermuda’s are the PLP elite living large and the rest of us suckers paying for it all.

  5. Retro says:

    Nice cover . Looks a bit like a magazine ad for a prescription drug. Delusions of grandeur may be a symptom of something.

  6. Bermudian says:

    Yourself!

  7. spinspinspin says:

    Ironic, seeing as how with the state he and the PLP left the country in, the answer is right on the cover.

    • Successful, educated Black men who go against de grain and confront racist policies is always a threat, just like Dr. E F. Gordon, Dr. Roosevelt Brown, etc. were a threat.
      Get over it.

    • Economic Contraction says:

      Underrated comment.

  8. sandgrownan says:

    I expect a bunch of revisionist bollocks.

  9. Shari-Lynn Pringle says:

    Congratulations Dr. Brown. I’m looking forward to purchasing a signed copy.

  10. Vortex says:

    After Burt’s ugly speech earlier in the week, Brown agenda now seems moderate by comparison.

  11. Me says:

    A legend in his own mind

  12. Ricky says:

    The Aleister Crowley pose…

  13. CHRIS says:

    The ego of this man knows no boundaries. The scary thing is the people who will shell out FIFTY dollars for this drivel will be the ones who can least afford it.

    Do you accept burtcoin?

    Come on Bermuda, feel the glove!
