Synopsis

In Harlem, in the late 1920s, there lived a numbers running gangster by the name of Ebenezer Scrooge, who struck terror into the heart of the Harlem community. But on a crisp Christmas Eve, it was Scrooge's turn to be frightened. Ancestral ghosts arrived, attempting to save Scrooge (and Harlem) from hate. Swinging through the past, present and future, this modern-day Christmas Carol is filled with the rhythms of jazz and voices of the Harlem Renaissance. Narrated by a bass player named Charlie, gospel-moaning ghosts, cutthroat gangsters, struggling citizens and poets come together to tell Dickens' timeless Christmas tale. They Sing Christmas Up In Harlem is a funny and profound look at how joy and hate can change the face of a city.
