Colin Powell, the first black US Secretary of State, has died at 84 from COVID complications.
He passed away early on Monday, October 18, 2021 with his family wanting the public to know he had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
He was the son Jamaican immigrants and began his career in the military during the Vietnam war. He became Ronald Reagan‘s National Security Advisor in 1987.
Powell became the Secretary of State after he was appointed by George W. Bush, but in 2007 he went on the record to say he was no longer supporting President Bush in relation to the Administration declaring war on Iraq, leading him to support Barack Obama in 2008.
He is survived by his wife Alma Vivian Powell and three children.
Rest in Peace.
