Description: Ken Cockrel was an often-controversial, often-inspirational figure in Detroit politics, from his emergence as a radical black activist and lawyer in the 1960s, through a term on the Detroit City Council, to speculation that he would run for mayor. This program, aired shortly after Cockrel's sudden death from a heart attack in 1989, explores Cockrel's contribution to the city.
