Angelo B. Henderson (c. 1962 – February 15, 2014) was an American journalist, radio broadcaster and minister from Detroit, MI. In 1999, Henderson won the Pulitzer Prize[1] for Distinguished Feature Writing. Henderson remains the only African American journalist to win the Pulitzer Prize for The Wall Street Journal. [2][3][4][5]

As part of Henderson's advocacy efforts to encourage Detroit citizens to embrace civic involvement, he co-founded The Detroit 300, a citizen's patrol group aiding Detroit police; the Angelo B. Henderson Community Commitment Award has since been established in his name.[6]
