John Conyers dies at age 90

The longest-serving African-American member of the U.S. House of Representatives has died.

John Conyers, who joined the House in 1965 and stepped down in 2017, died on Sunday at the age of 90, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said in a written statement released by his office.

The Detroit-area congressman, whose reputation was sullied by sexual harassment accusations prior to stepping down, was a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus and a staunch advocate for civil rights.

Just days after

Duggan said Conyers' impact on Detroit and nation will quote "never be forgotten."
