Colin Powell, the first Black U.S. secretary of state, died from complications from Covid-19. His leadership in several Republican administrations helped shape American foreign policy in the last years of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st century. Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body’s immune response, as well as Parkinson’s. Madeleine Albright preceded Powell as Secretary of State. She joins AC360 to remember her friend and says he was one of the “warmest, kindest, smartest, and patriotic" people she had met. Plus, Bob Woodward interviewed Powell last summer for what is believed to be his final interview. He talked about his health saying “don’t feel sorry for me” and said the greatest person he’s ever known was his wife of 58 years, Alma. Woodward tells Anderson Cooper about their conversation and what stuck out the most to him.
