204. Percy E. Sutton (1920-2009)
"Percy E. Sutton, a pioneering figure who represented Malcolm X as a young lawyer and became one of the nations most prominent black political and business leaders, died in a Manhattan nursing home on Saturday, his family said. He was 89.

Entering politics in the early 1950s, Mr. Sutton rose from the Democratic clubhouses of Harlem to become the longest-serving Manhattan borough president and, for more than a decade, the highest-ranking black elected official in New York City."
