Examples of Howard in a Sentence

  1. Julie Lewis:

  2. Chadwick Boseman:

    Having studied at Howard( a historically black university in Washington, DC) and having various different experiences within our culture, I knew it was an opportunity to pull from real things, real achievements, real African culture and place it in this movie to make it real, if anybody believes that Africa didn't have an empire, didn't have architecture, didn't have art, didn't have science, you see it in this movie.

    We were overcome with emotion. Probably much like Lord Carrington and Howard Carter, on being the first for centuries to enter Tutankhamun's tomb, it really is a treasure trove. No doubt a once-in-a-lifetime discovery.

  5. David Edwards:

    Even open-minded people will often find themselves unable to take seriously the likes of [Noam] Chomsky, [Edward] Herman, [Howard] Zinn and [Susan] George on first encountering their work; it just does not seem possible that we could be so mistaken in what we believe. The individual may assume that these writers must be somehow joking, wildly over-stating the case, paranoid, or have some sort of axe to grind. We may actually become angry with them for telling us these terrible things about our society and insist that this simply 'can't be true'. It takes real effort to keep reading, to resist the reassuring messages of the mass media and be prepared to consider the evidence again. - David Edwards
