Allen Jones was proud to say that he was going to a private school on a basketball scholarship in the fall at Cornwall Academy. He met Parcells Jones from East Side House on Alexander Avenue, one of the local community centers, who presented him with a check from the Urban League for $1,000. PJ, as people called him, was a good person, and he would continue to be an important figure in his life later, as would a lot of others. So much had happened to him in the short time since he had been released from Rikers Island, and he was grateful for every opportunity he had been given. As the bus left Manhattan, what he saw was a far cry from the tenements and Housing Projects of the Bronx. This was white America, an undiscovered country.
