Colin Powell, a trailblazing military leader who went on to become the United States’ first Black secretary of state, died October 18 at the age of 84. Powell died from complications from Covid-19, his family said on Facebook, noting he was fully vaccinated. Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body’s immune response, as well as Parkinson’s disease, Peggy Cifrino, Powell’s longtime chief of staff, confirmed to CNN.
