A Fighting Chance
Boxing trainer BILLY HOWICK
This is the story of three boys who are ambitious, talented, and black. Most of the stories we usually hear are concerned with their special problems - bad housing, unemployment, the violence of the ghetto. But many are conquering prejudice and defying prophecies of doom.
ESTHER RANTZEN meets three boys who are, each in their own way, breaking out of the ghetto. PHILIP RAMOCON is a musician. DABS EDUN is a boxer. LEBURN ROSE is head boy of a comprehensive school in London and his ambition is to become a teacher; to succeed simply on the strength of his character and intelligence. All three are determined to make good lives of their own; all three believe they have at least a fighting chance.
