Carl Stokes was an American politician and 51st mayor of Cleveland. His selection as the mayor of Cleveland, Ohio signifies a new era in the political arena of America. Hailing from a poor economical background, Carl was an alumnus of prestigious University of Minnesota Law School. He started his career by working as the assistant city prosecutor of Ohio bar. His political career began when he was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives. As a mayor of Cleveland, he played a crucial role in creating employment opportunities for African-Americans and women. He skilfully dealt with the difficult situation during the movement of white residents in Cleveland. In his autobiography “Promises of Power”, he admitted that the incident of Glenville Shootout that resulted in the death of six black civilians ruined his effort to build a sense of unity in solving racial discrimination in Cleveland. As part of the television station WNBC, he was the first black anchorman of the New York City. As the recipient of a number of honorary degrees and civic awards, this powerful politician represented America during several goodwill trips around the world. The National League of Cities voted him its first black president -elect in 1970.
