Warren Brown

Warren Brown

It’s long been said that America has a love affair with the automobile. Few have been more accomplished in chronicling that relationship – and providing  practical insights on cars and the automobile industry – than Warren Brown.

For nearly 30 years, Brown has been writing his “On Wheels” column for the Washington Post, giving readers the benefits of his expertise and first-hand experience behind the steering wheels of cars of every make and model. He also provides regular video test drives and radio commentaries. Earlier this year, he became the sixth winner of Road and Travel Magazine’s Lifetime Legend Award.

Brown is also co-author, along with his former Washington Post colleague Martha Hamilton, of the book Black and White and Red All Over. The book tells the story of how Hamilton, who grew up in segregated, white, blue-collar Houston, donated a kidney to Brown, who grew up in segregated, black, Catholic New Orleans, when he was  critically ill with kidney disease. The book shares their story, one  of integration, lifelong friendship and one person’s decision to save another’s life.
