Terrence Howard Parents
Terrence Howard’s parents, Tyrone Howard and Anita Williams, raised Terrence in Cleveland, OH though he was born in Chicago, IL.  Howard’s parents were biracial parents: his mother was black and his father had European features, hence Terrence’s complexion and green eyes.

People waiting accused the Howards of cutting in line and an argument ensued between Terrence’s father and another patron.  The other man pinned Terrence’s father against a wall and kneed him in the groin.  Terrence’s father suffered a previous groin injury so the blow made Tyrone’s groin bleed.

Tyrone then used a sharp object to stab the man in his neck and thighs.  Tyrone fled to his mother’s house before turning himself into the police.  The man, Jack Fitzpatrick, was rushed to the hospital where he died from his wounds.

Tyrone was charged with second-degree murder and pled self-defense.  Terrence’s mother denied that Fitzpatrick used racial epithets yet she testified that he stated, “Doing things like this has set your race back five years.”

After a long deliberation, Tyrone Howard was convicted of manslaughter and received a sentence of 1 to 25 years.  He was released for good behavior after serving 11 months.
