UNCF Mourns the Passing of Joe Madison

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Radio Hall of Famer Joe ‘The Black Eagle’ Madison.

He was a friend of UNCF and historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and their students. UNCF President and CEO Dr. Michael L. Lomax was a guest on his radio program as Madison championed UNCF’s mission to support HBCUs.

Joe Madison was not only a prominent figure in the media industry but also a tireless advocate for social justice and equality. His passion for uplifting the African American community and his commitment to advancing education and opportunities for all will be greatly missed.

Throughout his career, Joe Madison demonstrated an unwavering dedication to promoting dialogue, fostering understanding, and challenging systemic injustices. His voice resonated with millions, and his impact will continue to be felt for generations to come.

During this difficult time, we stand with the Madison family and offer our heartfelt support. We hope that the memories of Madison’s remarkable achievements and the impact he made will bring comfort and solace to all those who mourn his loss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow.

May Joe Madison’s legacy continue to inspire us all to work towards a better future.
