Program is divided into two halves: the first consisting of basketball-playing improvement tips, the second of newsmagazine-style segments. Tom "Satch" Sanders, former professional Boston Celtics player and basketball coach for Harvard University (from 1973 to 1977) works with a group of young boys and girls to help them improve their game (better shooting, "lay-up" shots, following through, releasing, passing, etc.) and focuses on team play techniques. Additional segments include "Community Access" (about the work of the St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church's Committee to Rescue African Families From Death by Drought), "Blast from the Past" (with an excerpt from an interview with Cornell University development staff member Cleve Sellers on the South Carolina State College incident in February 1968 that Sellers participated in), the "Community Calendar," a short segment on the community services Say Brother offers and how to participate, and a mime performance by Halim Adbur Rashid (Fred Johnson).
