NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s first African American mayor, David Dinkins, has died. He was 93. Dinkins broke barriers when he was elected to lead the city in 1989 but the Democrat’s calm and low-key demeanor was seen by critics as a flaw and Dinkins only served one term. The New York Police Department says initial indications were that he died of natural causes.
