Earl Byrd - Black Journalist with Raw Talent - August 1,1941 - August 3, 2004

Earl took to journalism right away, recalled Ron Sarro, the journeyman reporter to whom Byrd was assigned when he arrived at the Star. He liked people, so he could elicit information to tell their stories. He could empathize with them. He had a gift for writing.

Recognized by the Maryland-Delaware-DC Press Association and the National Newspaper Publishers Association for his work, Earl thought every word he wrote was pure gold. That’s because writing was his passion. Earl just loved life.
