Biography

The Roscoe Lee Browne Scholarship Fund was established as a legacy to actor, poet, educator and athlete Roscoe Lee Browne and in particular to his great love of the written and spoken word. 

The Fund initiated and underwrites The Roscoe Lee Browne Poet-In-Residence Award at The Millay Colony for the Arts. It also facilitates and supports a collaborative project with The Langston Hughes Memorial Library at Lincoln University which will house the body of his literary work.

The fund was created and is directed by Laurence Fishburne and Anthony Zerbe, two of Roscoe’s oldest and dearest friends.
