Remembering Bill Lynch (1941 – 2013)

August 10, 2013

On Friday, Harlem lost a lion. Bill Lynch was an incredible figure not just in Harlem, but around the world. How many people can say they were instrumental in electing the first black mayor of New York City – David Dinkins – and the first black president of South Africa – Nelson Mandela? And yet, despite his success, Bill Lynch was known as a person who was in touch with the community and who was accessible to help those around him. He will be greatly missed.

Read his obituary in the New York Times.
