Brathwaite EdwardBRATHWAITE, Edward Oscar  -

1940 - 2023


Edward Oscar Brathwaite, father, educator, world-traveller, was born in 1940 in Penny Hole (now called Gemswick), in St. Philip, Barbados.


A proud student of St. Martin's Boys School, he went on to apprentice in the carpentry trade as a youth, before immigrating to England.


In the mid-60s he arrived in Toronto, Canada, where he studied architectural technology at Ryerson Polytechnic.


He would go on to earn his BA and Bachelor of Education degrees at the University of Toronto, and become a teacher with the Toronto Board of Education for over 30 years.


Oscar also received his Masters of Education at the Univeristy of Toronto, and held leadership roles in organizations such as the Canadian Alliance of Black Educators (CABE), while also founding TETIN (Technical Education and Training International). His career led him to Southern Africa, where he trained educators at Botswana Polytechnic.


His work and travel would take him to 13 African nations, as well as throughout the Caribbean and South America. Oscar passed on May 6, 2023 in Toronto, Canada.


He is survived by his children, Caroline, Wendy and Edward; siblings, Irma, Gwen and Farley; grandchildren: Michael, Tisha, Danielle, Akir, Diarra, Elijah, Nya and Isaiah; great-grandchild, Shamarra; as well as his loving extended family.


May he rise in power, and rest in peace.
