  • Published by American Comics Group for Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited (HARYOU)
  • HARYOU, an organization founded by Dr. Kenneth B. Clark, ministers and community leaders were awarded a grant in 1962 of $230,000 to conduct a neighborhood study and create a strategic plan to create opportunities for young people in Harlem
  • A comic book format was one of several modes of communicating the results of the study. It was distributed as a pamphlet that identified Harlem's problems and proposed a strategy to empower black youth by creating more job opportunities, providing job training and assisting delinquent youths in rehabilitation while increasing black consciousness and pride
  • As the subtitle suggests, a blueprint for improvement was proposed that focused on five areas: Community Action, Education, Employment, Special Programs and Arts & Culture
  • Although the issue is numbered #5, there is no evidence of prior issues and is likely the fifth general publication that resulted from the study
