• Short Summary

    Young African American children play musical instruments in a school classroom.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: ""Meet the boys and girls of Columbus Hill Community Centre, New York, who claim to be the most rhythmic bunch in America."

    A group of young black schoolchildren sit together in a classroom, some have musical instruments. They look around 4 or 5 years old. A young boy walks into the room and stands on a chair to conduct the "orchestra." The children clap and play their instruments. Nice C/Us of some of the children. They all look very happy - lots of lovely smiling faces. The children are probably African American children.

    A young boy sings a short song, looking very serious.

    Note: the tune is 'If I Could Be With You' - SL.
