Boy Scouts of Harlem 759
Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVG
2010 is the centennial year of the Boy Scouts of America, and national public television viewers can now see the power of this transformative organization. This film is a charming and gentle exploration of how the Boy Scouts - along with two weeks at a magnificent summer scout camp - can change a group of boys from Harlem into young men. Through these boys' eyes, we see camaraderie, structure, and personal growth in a world that is quite removed from their homes in Harlem. But the real story is the personal growth they experience, and how one formative week can change a boy's outlook on life forever. The images are enhanced by the haunting and emotional music soundtrack of a soloist performing a traditional spiritual. Over 50 million Americans have had connections to, or have been members of this formative organization.
