Al Sharpton, Howard Beach or Crown Heights, Tawana Brawley’s dubious rape allegations, the Daily News Four trial, or Spike Lee‘s filmmaking career, Cooper’s City Sun commanded attention and moved officials and readers to action.Cooper’s leadership also gave Brooklyn–particularly predominantly black central Brooklyn–an identity.
