Does anyone remember seeing the precision drill marching team in the 60's called The Screaming Eagles ? This was a group of young black kids who would march in every parade possible - I gotta tell ya, they were especially the high spot of all the Polish Day Parades cuz, well they didn't exactly blend... but man, they were GREAT ! They looked dangerous dressed in black berets, stepping, clapping, chanting and with moves that often made you think of The Hardest Workest Man in Show Biz, Brotha James ! That group seemed to fall off the map at some point but I would love to see some old photos or film about them. Even in a little Gumba-run, racist town like Utica, EVERYBODY respected those kids ! Talk about Black Power ! Who ran that program ? Any History out there ? By the way Utica, black families in Utica had a great history at one time and contributed alot to our growth. Is it possible that when the WHITE politicians, that YOU voted for, decided to build prisons throughout Central NY which enticed drug-addled scumbag families of scumbag criminals from NYC to move up here, is it possible YOU asked for this "black" problem ? YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID !

You are absolutely right - the Screaming Eagles were fantastic! If my memory serves me correctly, the Screaming Eagles Drill Team was made up of black youths between the ages of 10 - 18. They practiced every night and it showed in all their exact precision moves.

I would love to see the Screaming Eagles get organized again - which would show everyone just what can be accomplished with the right type of leadership and willingness to work towards being "The Best at what they do".

Great call, I'm with ya on this. Maybe the Oneida County Historical Society has something on that group history, founders etc. This was not some "sell-out" outfit. These kids were black and proud and from what I recall they had to maintain grades to stay in the group, not unlike another classic outfit from Utica: THE MAGNIFICENT YANKEES, drum and bugle corps !

They came to Little Falls once. City parade. It was 1965, We were amazed. We had never seen black people before. Who knew?

I saw them at a fairground when I was around twelve years old. They performed right in front of the crowd where I stood. I'm going on fifty-four now and I still remember feeling the ground shake with every step they made. Absolutely amazing.

I remember them in parades.. I always had the impression they were hand picked black angry men.. some cult group that would someday wipe out the white folk.

I know what you mean LWB, I kind of felt the same way as you back then. Sounds crazy today, but they were a bit intimidating to a kid like me. Now I see it for what it really was; pride, talent, and precision. I just can't help but wonder how many were lost to Vietnam.
