End Of A Song

The famed Boys Choir of Harlem, which for three decades gave kids
from New York City's poorest, toughest neighborhoods a chance to shape
new lives through music, has ceased
to exist. Beset by money problems, a sexual abuse case and a cover-up
scandal, alumni announced the choir's end at a Christmas concert at a
Harlem church.

"Tell the people - let it be known," said alumnus Terrance Wright. "There is no Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem."

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
