Berry suffered from numerous health issues over the years, including diabetes, kidney ailments, and even prostate cancer. Many have known Marion Berry for the video of the mayorsmoking crack cocaine with an undercover FBI investigator. However, despite his arrest for the possession and use of an illegal substance, Berry still ran for DC Mayor and won, making his election campaign one of the political comebacks in history. Berry also opened doors for middle and upper-class African Americans within in DC during his terms. Although Berry is gone, he will always be DC’s most beloved political leaders.
