Dick & Jane In Harlem

In a Harlem elementary school classroom children read from "Dick and Jane". Classroom shots of young children standing at desks. Footage of ghetto poverty mixed with white specific, non-relevant illustrations from the book. Irony. Street shots include an old limping woman in front of a butcher store, two kids fighting in a rubble strewn lot.
