Biography

American politician, the two-term mayor of San Francisco, first elected on December 12, 1995, the city's first African-American mayor, and sworn in on January 8, 1996. On January 8, 2000, he was sworn in for his second term. He was born into poverty in a small racially segregated Texas town and worked hard to earn money through high school. He moved to San Francisco and worked his way through San Francisco State University (class of 1955) and Hastings College of the Law. (earning his J.D. in 1958) Admitted to the State Bar of California, he built his law practice, and, in 1964, was elected to the California Assembly, serving there for 31 years, through 16 elections. In 1980, he became Speaker of the Assembly, the state's only African American Speaker, and he held that position for 15 years.
