Either way, it's good to know. I started this version because diesel561 mentioned that the original Den Mother reminded him of his days as a Cub Scout, except that he grew up in Detroit and all of his Den Mothers were African American. If I recall he told me that his pack didn't tie any of them up so I figured I'd right a great injustice.
Back in my day-back in the late 50s and early 60s, I lived just south of 8 mile road (made famous by M&M (?)) in NW Detroit. The scout leaders were white and male. I did live in an integrated neighborhood so their were a lot of black kids, some of whom were my friends..
