Why is it that Ben Davis played no role whatsoever in the Civil Rights Movement in the early 1960s? I was extremely active in NYC during that time, and he had no presence at all. 
I know he died in '64, but still, I never even heard him discussed by members of the various CP youth groups, Advance, PYOC and the DuBois Clubs, unlike Robeson.
