Activist and New York City Councilman James E. Davis was just hitting the re-election campaign trail when tragedy struck.
“Shots fired at City Hall” was the call that came out over police scanners on July 23, 2003. Within hours, Davis was dead.

But did Davis die in vain?
This episode explores his legacy of activism, the underbelly of Brooklyn politics and the impact of losing a promising symbol of black leadership.
