A Tribute to Senator Edward Brooke
Avoice announces the passing of Senator Edward Brooke (MA). In 1966 Senator Edward Brooke became the first African-American popularly elected to the United States Senate. Hailing from Massachusetts, Brooke quickly rose as leader among his peers, tackling issues of discrimination and civil rights. As the co-author of the 1968 Fair Housing Act, Senator Brooke highlighted the fair housing crises, which ultimately lead to the creation of the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. Often noted for his ability to reach across the aisle, Senator Brooke's leadership and dedication to equal rights has allowed him to leave behind a legacy of unwavering service to his community and the United States. Salute!
