A Committed Civil Rights Leader is Mourned
James Davis, Glen Cove's champion of civil rights who committed his adult life to going out of his way to assist people of any color with problems related to discrimination in any form, died on Nov. 13, 2001. Mr. Davis, affectionately known as Jimmy, was 74 when he died. He leaves a legacy of tenacious, patient and dignified efforts to eradicate discrimination in his city, state and country. The man who spoke quietly of standing shoulder to shoulder with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in a segregated South, being cursed at and spat upon, being shot at while seeking cover in a church, was able to break through barriers of segregation paving the way for generations to come. And Mr. Davis accomplished this in his way---one day at a time, peacefully.
