      The third city in which the CORE-sponsored group is attacked, the incident

      become the first African American elected to the Wayne County Council of the
      AFL-CIO. He will found the National Negro Labor Council in 1951. Walter
      Reuther and other white leaders of the labor movement will refer to the NNLC
      as a tool of the Soviet Union and cause Young to be called to testify before the
      House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1952. He will reach the pinnacle
      of his political career when, as a state senator, he is elected the first African
      American mayor of the city of Detroit, Michigan in 1973. He will revitalize Detroit,
      integrate the police and fire departments, and will significantly increase the number
      of city contracts with minority businesses.  He will be elected mayor for an unprecedented
      five terms.  He will step down as mayor in 1993 at the age of 75.  He will join the ancestors in 1997.
