Block Preparation and Coating

Two-fold question on preparation of concrete block before painting and recommended paint (coating).

Problems: The basement concrete block is mildewed (mold), some as high as six inches up from the floor.

The garage 'concrete' block is black, and I am not sure if it is called 'cinder' block. The garage was built in 1954.

Request: How would I prepare each of the above surfaces, and what is your opinion for the best paint (coating), and its application.
