The Drums Beat, A Call to Action: A Tribute to Prince Jubril Adelagun

By Damali Binta Yael On February - 7 - 2010


This is a tribute to a mentor in communications and sports writing—Prince Jubril Adelagun.

It has been a year since the passing of a dear professional friend who inspired me to write often and to do research, not only on a national scale but also on an international level.

Prince Adelagun inspired me to write about sports, including American football and soccer. Although the seeds were planted as far back as 1999, I actually started writing about sports in April 2009 on Bleacher Report.

One of Prince Adelagun's children is continuing to publish The Houston Punch newspaper, and he has invited me to contribute sports articles, from time to time, in the future.
