Today we lost one of our good brothers “ Sekou Smith.” We just spoke to him 2 weeks ago about doing our HBCU symposium in his hometown Grand Rapids Michigan. He was extremely excited! He attended Jackson State!

For 2 decades he was a staple in the NBA for writing contest!

Just heard.

He had 2 sons. He posted them on IG and you could tell he really loved them too.

Sleep peacefully.🥀
