Touched by tragedy and harboring a paralyzing secret, Mickey O'Neil is the kind of boy who feels things others don't seem to notice. Especially adults. And this embodies him with a unique gift. Empathy. Still, when a traffic detour forces his family's car through a black Bronx neighborhood, Mickey, like his mother and older brother, is afraid. The year is 1969. Whites and blacks still live in different worlds; and when Mickey and his brother run from home they find themselves lost in the world they've never known. Harlem. Alone, frightened, and without a cent, the brothers are at the mercy of the streets. But salvation comes in the form of the first black man they've ever met. A widower and former Negro League ballplayer, Jack Hutchins has demons all his own, born of a lifetime of discrimination. Reluctantly, he agrees to shepherd the troublesome boys across Harlem to his workplace, Yankee Stadium. But along the way their truths and secrets bubble to the surface and bring with them a danger all their own. Touching on themes of innocence, guilt, forgiveness and ultimately love, "In Harlem's Way" tells the inspiring story of the unlikely relationship forged between Mickey and Jack, and the bond that heals and forever changes them both.
