About this title


Dr. Walter Turnbull dreamed of creating opportunities and better lives for the children of Harlem. This is the story of how he realized his dream. Dr. Turnbull shares the hard-bought wisdom he learned throughout his life, from his childhood in Mississippi to his experiences as founder and director of the now famous Boys Choir of Harlem, and talks about how to teach children that through hard work, discipline, and self-respect they can attain their highest goals. Available now. 2 cassettes. .

From Booklist:

Turnbull, director of the Boys Choir of Harlem, started the group 26 years ago to "share the joy of music with African American children." His success with motivating and transforming the lives of the boys eventually helped the choir evolve into the Boys Choir of Harlem Academy. Music and the music instructors in Turnbull's life were instrumental in shaping his beliefs and desire to rise above his situation. His educational achievements, from an elementary one-room schoolhouse to master's and doctorate degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, are noteworthy for a poor child raised in Mississippi before the civil-rights era. The boys' stories of successes and failures shaped Turnbull's vision of providing musical, academic, financial, and emotional support for his choir members. It is evident from his own drive and ambition that he has instilled the same work ethic and courage in his young men of Harlem. Turnbull's musical triumphs have propelled him into international prominence, and his goodwill and philosophy are lessons for us all. Lillian Lewis
