Caribbean pols pay tribute to Gen. Colin Powell

Caribbean American legislators in New York on Monday paid tribute to Caribbean American four-star General Colin L. Powell, who died on Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, in Bethesda, MD, from complications of COVID-19, his family said. He was 84.

“On behalf of the people of the 9th District of New York, the Clarke Family and myself, I extend my deepest condolences to the Powell Family and his loved ones and friends,” Caribbean American Democratic Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke, the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, whose 9th District in Brooklyn, encompasses an overwhelming number of Caribbean nationals, told Caribbean Life.
