In 1953, Fred Johnson gave up his most unusual career as an acrobat and turned to an even tougher job: Working with underprivileged youngsters in one of New York City's most troubled ghettos. Though he knew little about juvenile deliquency, drugs and minorities, he did bring with him an innate understanding of young people and his remarkable talents as an acrobat. The Tumbleweeds, a tumbling act made up of five eager Puerto Rican boys.
