DENVER – Former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb will discuss his autobiography, “The Man, the Mayor and the Making of Modern Denver” at several public events during its release in February.

President William Clinton, who read the autobiography, writes: “Wellington Webb, the first African American Mayor in Denver’s history, worked tirelessly to reduce crime in his city and across the country, and I was proud to appoint him to chair the U.S. Conference of Mayors Task Force on Violent Crime. His autobiography is a candid and compelling account of the remarkable life of a good man, an energetic, intelligent leader who served his beloved city and our nation well.”

This is the first time Webb has shared his life story – from arriving in Denver as a sickly child to overcoming personal tragedy and his underdog victory as the Mile High City’s leader. Published by Fulcrum Publishing in Golden, Colorado, the book includes more than 60 interviews with Webb’s family, friends and politicians compiled by co-author, former Denver Post reporter Cindy Brovsky.
