Boys Choir of Harlem: This Is My Story, This Is My Song!

Boys Choir of Harlem: This Is My Story, This Is My Song!

Approximately seven years prior to the Penn State debacle, the Boys Choir of Harlem also had a pedophile case of its own in New York City. Akin to the relationship between Coach Joe Paterno and assistant coach Sandusky, the choir’s founder, Dr. Walter Turnbull, attempted to cover-up the inappropriate relationship between the head counselor and a student. This case is particularly interesting to me because, akin to Aaron Fisher in the Sandusky case, “Student A” also reported the abuse to school officials. Upon reading the case summary [pdf below], compare and contrast the manner in which administrators deliberately vacated their responsibilities to report alleged sexual abuse in order to protect one of their own. In a nation wherein victims are betrayed daily by an ironclad conspiracy of silence, WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it, inconsequential to whatever “it” is!
