Early Life and Education
Science behind brain development during early childhood shows that positive experiences can set children on more resilient lifelong paths while adverse environments or experiences have detrimental consequences. That is why, in 2015, UNESCO approved Sustainable Development Goals that include providing inclusive and equitable quality preprimary education as one of their goals for development.
Barry was raised in Itta Bena, Mississippi and attended Booker T. Washington High School in Memphis, Tennessee before receiving a graduate fellowship to study organic chemistry at Fisk University where he became active in the Civil Rights movement through sit-ins, protests, and marches against segregated lunch counters in Nashville and served as chairman of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).
Barry made an effortless transition into broadcasting with Oakland Oaks’ 1967-68 season and quickly earned himself an All-Star spot and led the league in free throw percentage. During that inaugural campaign he earned himself an All-Star selection as well.
Barry suffered an ACL tear during a drive to the basket in 1968, which forced him to end his NBA career and return to ABA All-Star competition both 1970-71 and 1971-72. Even with that injury affecting him so severely, Barry still averaged 29 points per game and earned selection as an All-Star both seasons.
After his retirement, Barry continued his broadcasting work at TBS and TNT throughout the 1989-90 NBA season, often as color analyst paired with Bill Russell. Occasionally he filled in as play-by-play announcer. Barry would continue working up until age 76 before passing away in 2009. Barry was known for being both polite and classy throughout his life.
Achievement and Honors
Barry achieved fame through the 1960s when his band, John Barry Seven, scored hits on Columbia Records of EMI. These successes, coupled with his film scoring credits such as Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves attracted the notice of producers of the first James Bond film who reached out to him after becoming dissatisfied with Monty Norman’s score for Dr. No.
As an artist, Ella Fitzgerald has earned many honors and accolades throughout her career, such as being honored with the renowned Ella Fitzgerald Award in 2002 for singers whose musical accomplishments match their dedication to charitable and humanitarian causes. Other recipients have included Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Dame Julie Andrews, Eydie Gorme and Lena Horne among many others.
