Description

We are still on a break from the Bachelor, but connecting our stories to the franchise. Bachelor contestants tend to migrate to certain cities after the show (San Diego, Nashville, etc). New York seems to be the new hot spot, so Danielle covers a NY case. Danielle also heard the story while watching “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty,” which she says is a great show on HBO. Basketball was a theme during Matt James and Queen Michelle Young’s season.


Harlem, New York has fluctuated between a booming city of black excellence and a place of extreme violence, drugs, and crime. In 1964, weeks after the Civil Rights Act, James Powell, a 15-year-old black boy, was killed by a police officer. The death outraged the city and led to days of protest.
