The Wake of Vanport oral history

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- The first Black woman to hold the top FBI job in Mobile will retire.
Debra Mack took the top FBI job in Mobile in 2005. She announced her intentions Tuesday.
Special Agent Angela Tobon, a spokeswoman for the office in Mobile, says she did not offer a specific reason for departing several years before she turned 57, the agency's mandatory retirement age.
Mack worked to strengthen ties with area law enforcement agencies and expanded a program that puts agents in front of local schoolchildren.
Prichard Assistant Police Chief Jimmie Gardner, who also serves as president of the Mobile County chapter of the NAACP, calls it "a great loss to our community."
