NABJ Mourns the Passing of Angelo Henderson

February 15, 2014

AngeloHendersonNABJ is stunned to learn of the passing of long-time member and award-winning journalist Angelo Henderson in Detroit.

Henderson won a Pulitzer-prize for the Wall Street Journal in 1999 and currently hosted “Your Voice with Angelo Henderson,” a popular news talk show on Radio One in Detroit.

I first met Angelo when he was running for president in 2009. He said it was a logical extension of his service to NABJ. He had served two terms on the NABJ executive board and two terms as the president of the Detroit chapter of NABJ.

The news of Henderson’s passing hit all members hard, particularly NABJ presidents.

“Angelo was one of the most influential members in this organization, said Sidmel Estes, who served as president from 1991-1993, Henderson’s second term on the executive board as parliamentarian.

“His buoyant style in terms of his personal demeanor, as well as his love for NABJ is unmatched. This is just devastating to me.”

Henderson was a stalwart for NABJ. He had a passion for journalism, the ministry and issues affecting African Americans.

Our hearts go out to Felecia, Grant, the Detroit NABJ family and the many people who were touched by Angelo and grew to love him over the years.

We will keep members updated when new information becomes available.
