Davis was a poet, journalist, and political and social activist and former editor of the Atlanta Daily World, turning the paper from a semiweekly paper to the first successful black daily newspaper. Davis also served as a Member of the National Executive Board of the Civil Rights Congress, cited by the Truman Administration as a subversive organization. The Civil Rights Congress also was named a Communist Front in the House Un-American Activities Committee Report. Davis' work was resurrected during Amiri Baraka's (aka Everett LeRoi Jones) important Black Arts Movement. "47th Street" is named for Chicago's street of the same name.
