Colin Powell Dies at 84 of Complications From Blood Cancer and COVID-19

Colin Powell, the first Black U.S. Secretary of State, died Sunday from complications stemming from COVID-19, his family said. He was 84, and vaccinated, but had been battling a blood cancer which severely weakens the immune system.
