Edward Brooke, History Maker, Has Died

"...a truly remarkable public servant. A war hero, a champion of equal rights for all, and an example that barriers can be broken, Senator Brooke accomplished more than most aspire to."
He was the first African-American to be elected to the United States since Reconstruction. Brooke, a Massachusetts Republican, was 95.
