Andrew Young Mayor

Andrew J. Young is nothing less than a living legend.
 
An icon of the Civil Rights movement, he became a top strategist and trusted friend to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and witnessed his assassination.  In 1972, a predominately white district in Georgia elected Andrew Young as its representative to the United States Congress, making him the first black man to serve the state in Washington since the Reconstruction era.
 
Andrew Young served in Congress for three terms before being appointed United States Ambassador to the United Nations by President Jimmy Carter in 1977.  In 1982, he was first elected Mayor of Atlanta, and during two remarkable terms is credited with transforming the city into an international metropolis. It was largely because of his international influence that Atlanta was chosen to host the Centennial Olympic Games in 1996, which Ambassador Young served as co-chairman.

The Andrew J. Young Foundation was created to help make his visions for the planet a reality, and he serves as Chairman of this non-profit organization.
Andrew Young is  the author of three books, An Easy Burden, A Way Out of No Way, and The Making of Modern Atlanta.  He has produced, co-written and narrated over 30 acclaimed documentaries, including Rwanda Rising, which was chosen to open the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2007.
 
Sought after as an advisor to world leaders, as a speaker on the lecture circuit, and a frequent commentator on CNN and other news channels, Ambassador Young is a keen observer of politics and world events.
An ordained minister with the United Church of Christ for over six decades, he continues to preach and considers the work of the Andrew J. Young Foundation an extension of his ministry and of the Civil Rights movement itself.
