America’s youngest black mayor in history visits Kansas City

A young man who made history made a special appearance Thursday in Kansas City. Jaylen Smith became the youngest black mayor in American history after being elected in Earle, Ark. Smith was only 18 when he was elected. He spent the day talking to young men and students in the metropolitan area. He stopped by the Black Archives of Mid-America, where he told KMBC that he wants to inspire other young people to step up in their communities. “I wanted to bridge that gap by running for mayor to help not only my community be the best community it can be, but also help this nation close the gap,” Smith said. “But ask other young people to come out and make a difference in their community before moving on to the next stage of life.” Organizers of the Black Archives say they hope to have a file on him so others can learn more about his story.
