New York, NY – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Republican, have been sworn in as the first black mayors in U.S. history, following a four-month transition process in which the country’s first African-American elected official was appointed to the White House.
New York’s first black mayor, Andrew Jackson, was the first president of the United States.
The inaugural address was delivered by Jackson in February 1821, in his hometown of Jackson, Mississippi, and was delivered before the nation’s first coronavirus outbreak that began on February 6, 1918.
The next day, he addressed Congress.
In the following year, Jackson was elected the first African American president of a major nation.
A second African- American president, George W. Bush, was elected in 2000.
The inauguration of the first female president, Bill Clinton, was attended by an estimated 11.5 million people.
Clinton became the first Democratic presidential nominee in 2020, and the first Democrat to be elected president since FDR.
New Yorkers and New Yorkers across the country are celebrating with the inauguration of Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo.
Mayor deBlasio and Governor Andrew Jackson are sworn in on January 21, 2020, as the two-term Democratic mayor of New York State and first African Americans to serve in the White Houses of the two largest cities in the United State.
