A Metro bus driver preaches politics to his passengers, trying to get them excited about the upcoming Mayoral Election. He attracts media attention, and the attention of Metro’s Human Resources office, which fires him for violating a personnel policy unrelated to his politicking. Kojo talks with Sidney Davis about his activism, and how his two decades in Lorton prison transformed his life.
