Remembering Joe Hicks

Joe Hicks, who died on Sunday, was an iconoclastic figure in Los Angeles politics and media. In the ‘70s, he was a radical with the Black Power movement. Twenty years later, he served as LA head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the civil rights organization once led by Martin Luther King Jr. And 20 years after that, Hicks reinvented himself as a conservative pundit and activist. Even at 75 years old, Hicks continued to shift and change. Most recently, he left the Republican party because of his objection to Donald Trump.
