Episode Summary

EDIT
Manhattan Battleground
AIRED:
This episode presents a documentary about a social worker's approach to slum problems in Spanish Harlem in New York City. Dan and Hope Murrow lived there for five years and became totally involved with their neighbors, who included gangs of youths, alcoholics, drug addicts, and prostitutes. Violence had been a regular occurrence. Within two years after Murrow's arrival, the street fighting had ended, the gangs had become clubs and the fighting had been replaced with psychodramas, in which the youths worked out their aggression. Since they have completed their five-year project, the Murrows are leaving for Brandeis University. A play is performed which re-enacts what happened when Dan first tried to bring the gangs together for a peace conference.moreless
